Selwood Reach New Heights
Motivated by the memory of former Chairman, Kevin Bright, who lost a 5 year battle with bowel cancer last year at the age of 51, a party of ten from national plant and pump hire company Selwood, which included Kevin's wife Carole and their son Richard, set out to climb Mount Kilimanjaro on 22nd September on a fund raising campaign.
After five days of trekking in very mixed weather, ranging from extreme heat to extreme cold, as well as a day spent in the pouring rain, the party reached the peak of Kilimanjaro, 5,895 metres above sea level, on Tuesday, 27th September.
Although appreciating that altitude could be a serious concern, Managing Director, Chris Garrett, commented that they had perhaps underestimated the difficulty of the trek itself, the impact that lack of sleep would have on the party and how difficult it would be to keep clean. It was with some relief when they finally arrived back at base camp and were able to enjoy a shower and a long cool drink.
2011 sees Selwood achieve its 65th year in business and to celebrate this the company has set itself the challenge of raising £65,000 to benefit UK Cancer Charities. This climb was only one of many initiatives held over the year to raise money and more fund raising activities are planned with the target of £65K clearly in sight.
