A SOLIHULL pair left the office behind to scale Africa’s tallest mountain - raising £10,000 for Macmillan.

Marc Vaughan and David Morris, who work for Capita, tackled the vast peak to raise money for the cancer charity.

The climb took ten days and left the two friends exhausted, but they loved every minute.

Marc, who works in IT, said: “The climb proved to be one of the best experiences I have ever undertaken.

“It was extremely strenuous - both physically and mentally, and I am so proud to say that I have done it both for myself and such a commendable charity.”

Macmillan said they were extremely grateful for the pair’s efforts.

Rachel Gascoigne, from the charity, said: “The Kilimanjaro trip has raised a fantastic amount of money which will help us provide practical, emotional, medical and financial support for those living with cancer.”

Capita has a three-year partnership with a charity and in total 37 employees have tackled Kilimanjaro.
