On June 10, 2009, Radio Free Skaro’s good friend Neil Perryman (of Tachyon TV fame), along with Palma Carter, will attempt to climb the highest free-standing mountain in the world – Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. At a height of 19,340 feet or 5,900 metres (that’s almost six kilometres!), Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest volcano in the world.
The trek will take Neil and Palma through the rainforests of Tanzania and up the Lemosho route of the mountain over 11 gruelling days and nights, ascending almost six kilometres and walking over 90 kilometres in total. In addition to covering all of their expedition costs themselves, Neil and Palma will be aiming to raise over £3000 in donations for UNICEF, and they are asking for help to meet this ambitious target.
Please join us here at radiofreeskaro.com in donating to this worthy cause. Just click on the “justgiving” button at the top of the right hand column on our home page. Donating through justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor them: UNICEF UK gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

UPDATE: Neil has also started to set up a Doctor Who charity auction to help with his quest. Read about it here!
