Dr Richard Lindner took on the challenge of climbing Mount Kenya, raising close to £2000 for EACH

Richard at the top of Mount Kenya!

Richard told us:

"Climbing Mount Kenya was physically the most difficult thing I've ever done - but I made it to the top just after sunrise having got up at 2am! It was very cold at the top but the views were stunning and the sense of achievement was massive and very emotional. The descent back to our base was very awkward and painful (for knees and toes) but I limped in as dusk fell. Being able to raise money for EACH by doing this climb added another dimension to the whole expedition and certainly spurred me on in my training. I'm so pleased with the amount of money raised and of course extremely grateful to everyone who contributed. For me the climb will always be a highlight of my life and I continue to benefit from my increased fitness!"
