The two co-founders of Parenta will climb Mount Kilimanjaro in September in a bid to raise £10,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Allan Presland and Nick Williams will break away from their normal working routine to climb the 5895 metres mountain in Tanzania in September.
The climb will demand a high level of fitness, with regular walks and cycles to work contributing to their intensive training programme.
They hope to raise awareness of the Marie Curie Cancer Care, who provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give people with terminal cancer and other illnesses the choice of dying at home, supported by their families.
Nick Williams, who is currently training up to ten hours a week said: “One in three of us are going to be affected by cancer at some point in our lives, and we have all lost people close to us from the horrible disease.
“The work that Marie Curie nurses do is just beyond belief and if we can achieve this fundraising target by attempting this ridiculous stunt, then we'll make a real impact on someone's final days!”
A donations page and Facebook page have been setup online to raise the awareness of the campaign and receive further donations.
