  • Kilimanjaro trekkers return

    August 7, 2013

    Lindsey Gill, and her two daughters, Sarah and Eleanor (pictured), have taken on the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, to raise money for charity. The 8 day gruelling trek has been completed by the girls for Cavendish Cancer Care. Lindsey’s sister passed away in 2001, leaving behind 3 children, Sophie, 11, and twins Harry and Kat, 7. Only 10 years later, Lindsey then lost her brother in law to bowel cancer and became the guardian of the children. To help them through the difficulties, Lindsey and Kat visited the Cavendish Centre to seek counselling. Lindsey said

    “Kat and I were both very grateful for the kindness and care provided to us. We all want to ensure that this care remains available to people who are affected by cancer, and hope that our Kilimanjaro challenge may inspire people to support this worthy cause.

    It was a gruelling but unforgettable, and a remarkable journey to share with two of my daughters”
