Sutton and East Surrey Water boss raises money for WaterAid
Two men have scaled mount Kilimanjaro for charity.
Sutton and East Surrey Water’s Operations Manager Richard Rap conquered the highest free-standing mountain in the world raising £2k for WaterAid.
Pharamacist Raj Patel, chairman of Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth Local Pharmaceutical Committee achieved the same feat on February 22 to raise £6k for Age UK.
Mr Rap said: "Not many people can say they've climbed Kili, and seen an awe-inspiring sunrise from 5,500metres up a mountain looking down on the clouds and the African plains – a truly magical moment."
