Ex-Student raises £3,500 with Kilimanjaro summit


Some of you might remember my face from prize giving or your assemblies. Two years ago I I chose to climb Kilimanjaro for Meningitis Research Foundation and raised over £3500 for charity with the Heathland School’s help. It was the hardest challenge of my life, and I suffered from altitude sickness from the word go. But I’m a strong believer in not giving up. I persevered and managed to make it to the top. Now I would like to encourage you all to take on new challenges. Never limit yourself, because if you believe in yourself you can achieve anything.
