The Kilimanjaro Challenge

Here at Edwards Insurance Brokers, we like to think that we really go the extra mile. 

This year though, Christopher Edwards went over 6,000 miles to Tanzania, where he climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

On 10th June 2018, along with several other eager explorers, Christopher set off to take part in ‘The Climb’.  They made it to the rooftop of Africa to raise money for the Youth for Christ charity, a long standing client and good friends of ours.

Christopher had never done anything like this before but he took the challenge head on and we’re so proud to say he did it!

Christopher had a fantastic time on The Climb and came back with some amazing stories and some great footage.  Watch the mini documentary below to hear all about his time climbing Kilimanjaro.

Kilimanjaro: The Climb


The team had a fundraising target of £60,000 which will help Youth for Christ on their mission to show Jesus in a way which is relevant to every young person in Britain.  Chris managed to raise over £8,000 towards this target but any further help and support you can give for a fantastic cause will be most appreciated.

Youth for Christ are all ‘about seeing young people’s lives changed by Jesus’ and all of the money raised by the climb will go towards funding future projects and continue their fantastic work with young people.
