TEN staff from a Henley business were due to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro yesterday (Thursday) as part of a charity challenge.
They set off on Saturday and walked 11km in six-and-a-half hours. On Sunday the team completed their first full day of trekking to Shira camp at an altitude of 3,840m.
On Monday they reported experiencing some altitude sickness after reaching the highest point at around 4,600m. On Tuesday they reached the top of the Barranco Wall where they enjoyed views over to Barafu and Mount Meru.
They then made their way to Karanga Camp, through the Karanga Valley.
The staff are raising money for the Greys Road firm?s charitable foundation.
Over the past six months they have embarked on various fund-raising events, such as car washes, a 24-hour bike ride in association with LA Fitness and a quiz night in the Bird in Hand pub in Greys Road, Henley.
