An intrepid team of Forever Colours staff, family and friends are joining together to take on the challenge of a lifetime – climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania!

In January 2024, our team will embark on one of Earth’s great challenges to raise funds for our charity, so it can continue to support families for years to come.

We will be aiming to raise funds from every corner of society to help us reach our target of £100,000.

So far we have raised £29,500 of our £100,000 target!

About the challenge

At over 19,000 feet (5,895 metres), Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak, and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world. Located in Tanzania in the east of the continent, it offers climbers a vast range in terrain, from hot, dry savannah at the base, through heath and moorland, to a rocky, ice-capped summit. Most treks to the top and back down take between five and nine days to complete—for those who can withstand the severe changes in altitude.

Best of luck to the team in their training for what will surely be the challenge of a lifetime!

How we will use the funds

The climb will raise funds to help us sustain and grow our incredible charity in the years to come.

It will go towards helping children such as Rayan, diagnosed at 10 months old with a condition called Infantile Epilepsy Encephalopathy TBC1D24. Unfortunately with this condition he is unable to talk, walk and relies on a feeding tube for nutrition, and has multiple daily seizures. According to Rayan’s family, Forever Colours has been a “lifeline” for them. We will continue to be there for the family with the help from fundraisers such as the Kilimanjaro climb.

Help us reach our target

We are currently organising the best way to collect funds for the challenge.

We are limited by online platforms such as JustGiving as they do not allow us to show funds donated privately outside their websites, but we are working on a way to do so.

In the meantime, if you would like to donate or help us raise funds for the climb, please enter your email address below and we will get in touch shortly.

Thanks!
