Charity Challenge Completed!

By 6 years ago
Categories Cape Town
After a long 5 days, the challenge is over – and what a fantastic success it has been!! Many hardships were endured along the way and now there are many sore and aching bodies, but we completed the full 350km and the scaling of Table Mountain.

Of the full 5-dayers, Lucy had one injury too many to be able to attempt the last climb, but she met the rest there on the finish line so we could complete it together. It was a tremendous team effort and everyone deserves to be very proud. It was an awesome achievement!

However, we should be no means forget the exceptional effort of all of those involved – from those doing the full 5 days, to those doing the full final day, solely the mountain climb, to those providing the wonderful welcoming committee and much needed refreshments at the top. Everybody had a part to play and everybody contributed. A hand is needed for all.

And how much have we raised? At the time of writing, a brilliant £10,148.47!!!

What can we say except a huge thank you to each and every person who has donated. This money will make such an incredible different to the projects, our breaths have been taken away!! We are well over our target, but the more that comes through, yet more can we improve the lives of the beautiful children we work with. So if you feel like you’d still like to donate, please do, every penny counts. 

Thank you again from all of GVI Cape Town. 🙂
