Snows climb Kilimanjaro

Time 12:34 pm, August 2, 2011

snows-kiliTWO directors from Snows Group are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for a local children’s charity.

Group chairman Stephen Snow and board director Neil McCue will be climbing Africa’s highest mountain later this month to raise money for local radio station Wave 105’s Cash for Kids charity.

The pair will be joined by 10 other individuals including Wave 105’s managing director, determined to complete the 1,934 ft mountain in ten days, all facing dangers such as altitude sickness.

The 12 climbers – from a student to a lawyer – are all aiming to raise as much money as they can for the charity, who looks after underprivileged and sick children in southern England.

Snow and McCue had to raise £4k individually to get their place on the climb, and have high hopes to raise more than £20k in total.

‘Snows Group has for many years been involved with raising money for local charities – whether it is helping out schools or planting trees, we always like to get involved,’ Snow told us.

‘There’s also a great buzz going around our dealerships at the thought that we as a group are putting something back into the community. Everyone is getting behind us and has helped us in our training.

‘Two months ago you probably would have laughed at the thought of two car dealers running up a hill, but with their support they have helped us train for this mammoth trip.’

This isn’t the first time Snows Group has donated money to Cash for Kids. Last month, the dealer group gave a way a Seat Ibiza via a text-to-enter competition.
