A few words from Peter:

"Hi friends , family, and anyone who may have come across this page. I have decide to take on a mountain for a challenge. It is something that I've always wanted to do. Well climb the lovely mountains of Kerry!!! But those are like a foot hills, compared to Kilimanjaro, yes Kilimanjaro.

I am trying to raise €5000 for this which is probably a bigger task than the mountain . I have so far raised 3300, The Charity I am doing this for is Diabetes Ireland. A fact I didn’t know was that over 225,000 in Ireland suffer from Diabetes. And from my understanding this is always on the rise. Diabetes does not affect me directly but my Brother in Law has it, and it is he who suggested doing this climb. He too is doing it.

What the trek consists of is, it is a 11 day trip. The mountain is nearly 20,000 feet above sea level, so you have to climatise over a 6 day period, which means camping it ( and not showering for a week ). It says that the climb is like going from the Amazon to the Antarctic in 6 Days.

So Here Goes, I would be so thankful of Any support that people could give which would help me do this life changing personal challenge.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thanking you in advance."
