Childreach International

GLOUCESTERSHIRE, U K (This is Gloucestershire) - He highest freestanding mountain in the world is all that is between student Matthew Cole and his fundraising goal.

At 19,340ft, Kilimanjaro is also Africa's biggest peak and it is where Matthew will be climbing later this year for the charity Childreach International.

he 19-year-old from Cashes Green is intent on training hard to raise at least the £2,450 he needs for the challenge.

Former Maidenhill School pupil Matthew said: "I need to get into shape for this. I'm trying to raise as much money as I can and get to the gym so I can get fit.

"It is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world so it seems pretty difficult."

The Nottingham Trent University architectural technology student is training at a gym near his digs.

The Climb Kili 4 Kids adventure is not a standard charity trek. It includes the chance to spend time afterwards at some of the project's Childreach funds, an aspect which appealed to former Downfield sixth former Matthew.

In the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania the charity works with communities at a vocational training centre, on a schools' improvement programme and planting trees to offset carbon emissions.
