October charity round-up: Kilimanjaro & decathalons

This October we asked AccountingWEB members what they are doing for charity. Answers included climbing a world-famous mountain, organising a decathlon and 'lending with care'.

Conquering Kilimanjaro

It may be 8,000km away, four miles high and take eight days to climb, but it's about to be conquered by an accountant from Buckinghamshire.

ACCA qualified accountant James Harvey will climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania next Monday for a Kenyan charity.

What started out as a conversation with friends about climbing the mountain, something Harvey said was on his "bucket list", soon turned into a quest to raise funds for the Nasio Trust.

Great South Run    1 thanks

ajordan | | Permalink

Hi all

I will be running the Great South Run on 28th October for Cancer Research. This is the second year I have competed in it and will be hoping to beat my time from last year. I'm not a fast runner and I do find running 10 miles a challenge which makes this so much fun. Anyone who would like to sponsor me can do so via my donation page.

Please help me to raise as much as possible for this horrible disease which can so easily ruin lives.

Thanks

Alison

Keytime's Support Manager Steven Leach is competing in the Tough Mudder competition this November. Tough Mudder is a 12 mile long obstacle course designed by the Armed Forces to test one's strength, stamina and mental grit. If you could spare any money to donate then this would be much appreciated! All money raised is going to Cancer Research UK. The team target was £1000 and the team have already exceeded that by raising over £1000. You can donate online at the page below:
