Biker Climbing Kilimanjaro for Charity

Posted on


At the ripe old age of 54 yrs and 11 months Carl Coombes will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Biker Carl Coombes, climbing Kilimanjaro for Tenovus Cancer CareCarl, a Biker himself and like many of you, has lost friends and relatives to accidents, but so many more have gone to the awful disease, Cancer. He lost his younger brother three years ago and since then he has tried to do what he can to raise awareness and funds for those that are effected.

So as part of his efforts to raise awareness and funds, he is taking part in the Kilimanjaro Challenge in November 2016. Between now and then he is hoping to raise a minimum of £4,000 for Tenovus Cancer Care

The initial deposit of £390 has already been paid by Carl, plus the cost of visas, vaccinnations, insurance, travel to Heathrow, etc... and does not count as part of the £4,000 target.

If you are a biker or part of a biking community please help by donating what you can, via JustGiving or by texting BIKR98 to 70070 followed by the amount you would like to donate. For example: BIKR985 if you wish to donate £5, to 70070

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they will never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Carl Coombes is part of the team @ Extra Mile Bike Tours
