Kilimanjaro - THE Classic challengE
The highest mountain in Africa, Kili is one of the most popular treks in the world for good reason. So why not do it for charity? With a group of like-minded uni students? And why not throw in a week of safari or a bit of Zanzibar to celebrate at the end? Join DUCK Kili, and do just that.
Dates: July (3 weeks)
Provisional Fundraising Target: £3200
2017/18 Expedition Leader: Will Farr
The only DUCK exped without volunteering, Kili is a challenge, pure and simple. Spend seven days actually trekking, and then enjoy some time travelling and relaxing. The challenge is real, but so is the fun afterwards. Last year's team spent a week on safari and a week in Zanzibar - the itinerary is up to the team!
And of course, you’re still supporting charity - DUCK Kili works with COCO, and your donation of £1000 will go a long way to support their work in providing sustainable education throughout East Africa. COCO is a relatively small charity, meaning that the team’s donation makes a massive and visible difference to the communities that they work in - last year, for example, financed a brand new, fully equipped classroom, enabling COCO to reach ever more children.
Fulfil a personal goal, and make a real, positive contribution to the local community.
THE LEADER: Will Farr
Hi all, my name is Will and I’m a third year from Grey, studying Ancient History and Archaeology. I’m a bit of a veteran in these parts, having led Borneo this year and participated in the India Expedition the year before. However, in 2018 I have the honour of leading Kilimanjaro! If you come with me you’ll be climbing to the roof of Africa, going on safari in the Serengeti and chilling in Zanzibar. With regards to my interests, I like to travel (obviously), play Grey Rugby and was Grey’s Events Manager last year. Want to know more? Come to Kili!
