My Next Big Adventure!

Hello everyone!

I have a very exciting announcement to make! If you follow me on social media then you may have seen little hints or at least know that I had something planned. Well I can finally announce it TODAY! All has been confirmed and it's now up to me to sort things out before next summer. It's weird how excited I actually am to tell you about it...



Here goes...

Next summer, August 2017, I shall be travelling to TANZANIA to 

CLIMB MOUNT KILIMANJARO!

Sponsor me on BT MyDonate


I still can't believe it! And I don't think I will believe it until I've done it! Who knew that 4 weeks into my first year at university I would've signed up (and paid my deposit) to go and climb Kilimanjaro in the summer of '17. It was very much one of those moments where I was like 'that sounds good, I'm doing it!'

Thanks to my student loan, I was able to pay the deposit straight away to guarantee me a place and now here I am announcing this amazing adventure that I am extremely excited about (if you couldn't tell already)!

Of course I'm not just going to climb Kilimanjaro for the fun of it, I'm doing it all in aid of charity. I shall be fundraising for Childreach International, a charity that works for child rights in Bangladesh, Brazil, India, Nepal and Tanzania to help children reach their full potential.

Over the next year I wish to raise £3000, some of which will be used to pay for expenses (flights, trip, etc.) but the more I can raise, the more that goes straight to the cause! I have a few fundraising ideas in my head which I'm looking forward to planning, so look out for any information across social media if you want to get involved and to help out. In the meantime if you would like to donate some money and sponsor me, feel free to check out my fundraising page - https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/kiralcurtiskilimanjaro The page is run through mydonate, a BT service which makes sure all of the money goes straight to the charity and nothing is spent on admin.

I will be eternally grateful to anyone who wishes to donate. So thank you so much in advance! If you don't feel like you can give any money right now, the fundraising page will be available throughout the year until December 2017. Or I would be very happy if you could simply give up some of your time to perhaps do a bit of fundraising for me (maybe hold a coffee morning or do a bake sale) or even if you could simply share the fundraising page for me across your social media. Any help you can give me would be incredibly appreciated! If you are willing to do a bit of fundraising for me then please do get in contact, I'd love to hear your ideas. Any ideas of fundraising events that I could do would be helpful too, as I'm looking to do as much as I can.

This is most definitely going to be a challenge, both on the run up and the actual climb. I am very afraid of heights and falling so that's one worry that's on my mind. Also, I'm worried I may not be able to raise the amount that I need to be able to go on the trip since this it the biggest fundraising goal I've ever had! That said, I'm up for the challenge!

Please wish me all the luck in my fundraising and the climb itself! I'm going to need it!

Look out for more information about the climb and any fundraising by following my social media:

Thank you for any help you can give!
