Blanc Climb for Thusananga & Khaya Lokukhanya
This month Charles
& James Weatherstone climbed the highest
peak in Western Europe and raised lots of money for Thusananga
HBCA & Khaya Lokukhanya! The trip was booked and paid
for by the boys with Mont
Blanc Guides and all of the money raised
will benefit the projects here in South Africa. We
are so proud of you both!!
It was a thrilling
adventure starting with 2 days training and acclimatisation,
ice climbing with some mountaineering practice scaling some
of the smaller peaks in the French Alps (& ab sailing
into Switzerland!!) The day came to climb Mont Blanc and they
set off from the base camp at 4am, arriving at the top at
1030am exhausted but triumphant! ''It was the hardest thing,
physically we have ever done and the most amazing experience
- we would definitely do it again!!'' said the boys! Next
stop the Matterhorn..........
At the top
