On 24th January 2018 Dolores and Jo, two daring and amazingly generous people, started climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in support of our small charity and on the 1st of February they finally made it to the summit! WHAT A FANTASTIC ACHIEVEMENT.

They did it to support their brother-in-law and friend Mark Adams, who unfortunately suffers from MDS. They would like to help MDS UK Patient Support Group with any donations people kindly choose to make so that we can continue to support him and many others who need our help.

Dolores and Jo say in their witty Virgin Money Giving Page

Being the two mad hatters that we are, we have decided that to celebrate my Mum's 70th Birthday (That is Dolores definitely not Jo who is much much younger!!!) and climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

On the 13th of February they sent us this moving message:

We made it to the top of Kilimanjaro and just about got back down again. We reached the summit on the 1st Feb at 8.00am after setting of just before midnight for the final leg of the trip. Hard hard work but great sense of achievement. We took a couple of pictures for you at one of the camps and the summit with your t-shirts which Mark sent over to us.

You can still visit their Virgin Money Giving page and donate. We are overjoyed that MDS is at Kilimanjaro for the first time.
We are also enormously grateful to Dolores and Jo's friends and sponsors for any donations, big or small. They do deserve the strongest support for such an amazing achievement!!
