My names Kate, myself and my partner Joe are planning to conquer Kilimanjaro. On the 17th of October our adventure begins. We will be taking on this huge challenge in memory of Joe's mum Gail. Gail sadly passed away in March last year after loosing her battle with alcohol addiction. This wasn't the families first time dealing with the awful heartache of alcohol abuse. Gail's Brother Richard lost the same battle just the year before. Unfortunately it's not just the devastating loss of family, we also have family members, friends and as a consequence their loved one's, still fighting this horrible addiction.
Mine and Joe's aim is not just to raise the much needed funds to support this amazing charity but it's also to raise awareness on substance misuse. Everyone deserves a chance to make a positive change to theirs and their families lives with help and support.
Thank you for taking time to read our stroy and thank you for your support!
