Welcome to the North Wales Cancer Appeal

 

Carole and Sukhdev have scaled new heights.

I am delighted to share the story of their incredible feat, in memory of their dear friends John and Karen Hall of Brookhouse Mill Denbigh.

Climbing Kilimanjaro presented an extraordinary challenge for Carole and Sukhdev. After many months of training in preparation for what lay ahead, the physical requirements, the perseverance, and the determination, and a collaborative spirit are essential. Scaling Kilimanjaro, reaching an elevation of 5,895 meters, requires careful planning, resilience, and a supportive team. The journey was organized by Action Challenge, and brought together a team of 10 participants, including a seasoned mountain leader, and a resolute medic, both, as it happened, hailed from North Wales. Carole was full of admiration for all the support team.

Pushing boundaries, embracing challenges, and achieving remarkable feats. They trekked during daylight hours, and darkness, often walking through the night and for 13 hours. They faced extreme temperatures, torrential rain, snow and altitude sickness. But despite these adversities, the unwavering determination of Carole, Sukhdev and the group, kept them focussed and on track.

We are hugely grateful to Carole and Sukhdev, and all those who sponsored and supported them. They have raised an incredible £5,593.
