Hi I'm Sophie, I'm 25 and live in Bristol - welcome to my fundraising page! I'm taking on the challenge to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in February 2020 to raise money for Compassion UK with a team of 30 others and I cannot wait.

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world (5,895m above sea level). It's located in Tanzania, a country with almost half its population living below the poverty line.

I've been sponsoring my little girl, Melisa, through Compassion for two and a half years, helping to pay for her medical care, education and development. She's 8 years old now and lives in Tanzania with her grandmother. I'm hoping I'll get to meet them after the trek!

Compassion UK is an incredible charity which sponsors children in extreme poverty around the world. They have a variety of long term projects including pre and post natal care plans for mothers and sponsorship programmes for children, but they also help to tackle emergency situations, such as malnutrition and providing access to clean water.

I'm funding the trip myself, so all donations collected will go straight to Compassion.
