Climb every mountain

Everyone has a mental list of things they'd love to do one day and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is probably top of the list for a lot of people.

Kilimanjaro is the highest freestanding mountain in the world and also the highest mountain on the African continent at 5,896m. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains with huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit Uhuru Peak.

Sounds amazing doesn't it?

A group of fundraisers recently took on this challenge for us and did a great montage of photos and video from their trip which you can check out on You Tube. If you're inspired to find out more have a look at our website.

Sam completes amazing challenge

Well done to Sam Tomson and team who cycled 1,000 miles from Calais to Barcelona raising over £5,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

28 year old Sam, who has CF, cycled with his friends James Cathcart and Mike Tourle and his dad Colin. His mum Lynne drove the route to provide back-up and carry all his medication.

Well done Allison!

A HUGE congratulations to the lovely Dr Allison John who won a Pride of Britain award this week. Allison is a real inspiration to the CF community, as despite having all her major organs transplanted, she still fulfilled her dream to become a doctor, qualifying this year.
