Stuart Turner Kilimanjaro Challenge

Ten slightly insane Stuart Turner employees are planning to climb Kilimanjaro during Easter 2015 to raise funds for the Stuart Turner Charitable Foundation.

KilimanjaroThe nine men and one woman team will undertake a seven day endurance challenge to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in the aim of raising at least £10,000 for the Stuart Turner Charitable Foundation. The hike, involves walking six to nine hours a day, culminating in a gruelling 15 hour trek on the final day to reach the summit. The team have already embarked on various fund raising events and have each contributed £500 towards the cost of this event as well as meeting the costs of all the required equipment, visa's & vaccinations. However, the team need to raise a minimum of £20,000 to ensure the Trust benefits and all the costs involved in getting them there are covered. 

The Stuart Turner Charitable Foundation is a registered charity which was set up in July 2012 and is run totally independently of Stuart Turner Ltd. The primary objective of the Foundation is to support not for profit making organisations whose activities benefit the local community by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage or the advancement of education. 

The Foundation makes grants to a range of organisations and charitable activities in accordance with the Trust's grant making policy, all grants allocated are within the RG9 postcode area, the area in which Stuart Turner Ltd has been established as a renowned manufacturing company since 1906. 

In the short time the Foundation has been active it has already made substantial grants to:  Chiltern Centre for disabled children, My Life Choice and Headway Thames Valley to name but a few.

In order for this fantastic fundraising event to go ahead and to raise at least £10,000 for the Charitable Foundation the team need your financial assistance and support. Please keep an eye out for them, packing bags in Tesco and Waitrose or cleaning cars all in a good cause.
