Suzy’s Kil­i­man­jaro trek for school

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY NEWS -

A KIND-HEARTED teach­ing as­sis­tant is em­bark­ing on a jour­ney of a life­time to help her school.

Suzy McNulty, 39, is aim­ing to ful­fil her dream and climb Kil­i­man­jaro, the high­est moun­tain in Africa.

By tak­ing on the chal­lenge, which she is fund­ing her­self, she hopes to raise money for Park Lane School.

Suzy, a mum of two, who has worked at the school for three years, said: “She can­not think of a more wor­thy cause to sup­port. It has al­ways been an am­bi­tion of mine to trek Kil­i­man­jaro and now the time is right in my life to go for it. Fail­ure is not an op­tion. “

Suzy’s adventure starts on Au­gust 6 when she flies out. The trek starts on the 8th. She said: “It will take seven days to com­plete, reach­ing an altitude of 5,895m through for­est, moor­land and to alpine desert. As we get higher that chal­lenge be­comes harder as the oxy­gen gets thin­ner and tem­per­a­tures plum­met to mi­nus 10.

“I would ask read­ers to help me help my school.”

Spon­sor­ship forms can be found in the school’s re­cep­tion. You can also do­nate on­line at http:// uk.vir­gin­money­giv­ing. com/Suz­iMac-Kil­i­man­jaro
