Peter Holthuysen’s Kilimanjaro Charity challenge

He did it! Rittal service engineer Peter Holthuysen is safely back home now and on target for a total of £1000 raised for the Daisy Appeal (still time to sponsor if you were waiting to see if he actually did it)

Peter and his wife have been involved with the Daisy Appeal charity for some time and have been working hard to help raise funds for 2 new cyclotron scanning machines to be located, one at Hull University and one at Castle hill hospital Hull.

These units are intended to assist in the training of the new generation of doctors and surgeons. The machines and specifically designed centre to house them cost £7.5m which has to be funded entirely from charitable donations. Peter started his expedition in Africa on the 26th September  spent 7 days walking the mountain which is 5895 meters high which is the highest point in Africa.

The money raised will contribute towards the purchase of the machine and will help many people over a long period of time.

So proud of Peter, and thanks to all that supported and sponsored him so far.
