This summer Charlotte is climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for charity. She needs to raise £3,000. Half of this amount will go towards the charity dig deep, with the other half covering travel costs.

Dig deep works with rural communities in Kenya to access water and sanitation. They implement training and appropriate technologies to bring about sustainable improvements in health and education. They aspire to enable people to break the cycle of poverty and transform their own lives.
