A team of CHUMS supporters and staff are taking on the ultimate challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise as much money as possible to help us provide mental health and emotional wellbeing services to children and young people in Bedfordshire.

The trek is taking place over the course of 7 days from the 21st – 27th October and the climbers will reach the summit on 26th October having climbed to the highest point on the African continent, at 5895m /19,340 feet. Although it will be a once in a lifetime experience, it will take hard work and determination to ensure they get to the top!

We’ll be regularly updating our facebook page to keep you up to date with the progress of the team, as well as letting you hear about why they are taking on such a challenge!


You can also donate by SMS. Text KILI17 to 70700, followed by the amount you’d like to donate. (e.g. KILI17 £5)

We’d love to make this trek a regular event so if you’d like to take part in this event in the future, let us know by contacting us on 01525 863924 or emailing us on info@chums.uk.com
