On July 22 Team KL will set out to climb Mont Blanc to raise funds for the Khaya Lokukhanya Project. You can read about the team and our preparation below, but first a few words on why we are doing it:
This is Vuyo. Donations to KL help give children like him the chance to grow up with the care they need, attend school and be well fed and nourished by a community of foster mothers and other children. Vuyo means “Joy” in the Xhosa language. Help us bring more joy to the KL Project.
Team KL consists of Charles Weatherstone, David Gray, Clare Murphy and Rob Jones. With mountain experience ranging from lots to little or none, we are all taking this challenge seriously and have spent two weekends training in the mountains of Wales which, if you put them on top of each other, come part way up Mont Blanc! We are excited, a little apprehensive, but fully committed.
Many, many thanks in advance for your generosity. Please come by later for pics!
