Mount Kenya Traverse
Testimonial by Alice Grattan
Hi Andy, Gilbert and the Kenya team,
Testimonial by Dr John Parker
Hi Andy, I have arrived back in Adelaide after a great African visit/holiday etc.
Firstly, I want to express my appreciation and thanks to all those who helped me get to the top of Mt Kenya and down safely. It was a fabulous trek and reasonably challenging for me but Cyrus was great and walked slowly with me all the way. He was well supported by the other members of the support team – Jackson, Daniel and chef Agostino. They fed me very well and I take my hat off to them for their encouragement and support.
Secondly, after visiting the Embu rescue centre with Gilbert, I have offered to support the Moving Mountains project by way of providing some financial support so that Gilbert can get some of the younger lads onto the soccer/football field. I will do that directly through the Moving Mountains website in the next day or two.
Thirdly, I thank Kelly for getting my to and fro from Nairobi. We had a few problems getting stuck in mud on the way out of Embu but we made it to the airport in time so hats off to Kelly also. Thank you again for a very memorable and rewarding trek. Regards John
