Kenya Airways has flown a group of fundraisers from luxury long-haul travel specialist Hayes & Jarvis to Kilimanjaro, so they could climb Africa’s highest peak to raise money for international water aid charity Just a Drop. So far, the team has raised £14,000.
Hayes & Jarvis’ senior destination manager Nick Wilson said a previous visit to Kenya had inspired the team to climb Africa’s highest peak.
“We were so humbled by the welcome we received in Kenya last year. It gave us a real understanding of what local communities go through every day just to get water, which in some cases isn’t even clean.
“We’d like to thank everyone who has kindly supported us and, in particular, one of our key partners, Kenya Airways, who kindly agreed to fly us out to Kenya in the first place.”
Kenya Airways welcomed UK TV presenter Kate Humble on to flight KQ101, as she travelled to Tanzania to discuss the Comedy Wildlife Photographic Awards, which will be judged in November. For more information about the awards, go to www.comedywildlifephoto.com
