Ruth Harvey wrote recently to tell us of her excitement that she and her partner Dan Wells have booked to climb Mount Kilimanjaro later this year.

We are equally excited, as Ruth tells us that she and Dan would also like to raise funds,  to support the local communities in Tanzania. Having researched suitable charities, she identified Tanzania Development Trust as offering “a great match with what we’re trying to achieve – I want to be able to support some local initiatives to support communities in a number of projects, especially health, education and supporting women’s initiatives.”

Ruth and Dan’s fund raising page on MyDonate can be reached here:

All at TDT wish Ruth and Dan a successful climb, and also a great holiday. We hope they’ll send us a picture at the top!

Would you like to climb Kili, or take on another challenge, whilst fund raising on behalf of TDT? If you need any help or advice, or would like to nominate a specific project or type of project, please don’t hesitate to ask.
