Time to CLIMB!

20 August 2014

There are only a few days to go until four intrepid teams climb some of Ireland’s loveliest and most challenging peaks for the Climb for Kenya Friends of Londiani Mountain Challenge. We’ve signed up over 40 participants already so if you are part of this exciting event you’ll have support (and experienced guides) along with you on Saturday the 23rd of August.

On the other hand, if you plan to offer support from the comfort of your living room, local cafe or even supermarket, you won’t need guides, equipment or rugged clothing – just a mobile phone.

Yes, we’ve made it even easier for you to help us to raise funds. Just text CLIMB to 50300 to donate €4 of Londiani. Service Provider: LIKECHARITY. Helpline: 01 4433890. We’ll get the whole sum in most cases but even where your network provider applies VAT, a minimum of €3.26 goes to Friends of Londiani – and through Friends of Londiani to initiatives that will enable Kenyan women to establish sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their families.
Of course the more traditionally minded among you (if the internet can be called traditional) can go to mycharity.ie and donate there.

Speaking of texting, those of you ascending one of the highest mountains in each of the four provinces may get a decent mobile signal up there. If you do, then let your friends know that you made it (and that the view isn’t bad either). And remind them to donate!
