Kilimanjaro Challenge for Jigsaw Appeal The Jigsaw Appeal is a £1.5 million appeal to transform the Women’s Health Unit at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital, a unit which desperately needs your support to bring about a better experience for patients and their families. Because I’ve had family and friends fall victim to similar conditions (and because I love a challenge), I’ve decided to climb Mt Kilimanjaro (5895 meters) this September (6th – 21st 2011). The trek will last 8 days, taking the Lemosho Route and directed by World Expeditions (who also took Chris Moyles and Cheryl Cole to the top!) The terrain involves forest, heath, rocky outcrops and glaciers at the very top. Added to this is the challenge of adjusting to the altitude. I aim to raise £4000 pounds for the Jigsaw Appeal, and am asking anyone who feels
