McDonald Engineers’ Managing Director, Bill Stewart, has set off on an extraordinary challenge to scale Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, and raise £20,000 for charity in the process.
Bill together with his wife Mairead, will join a team from the Rotary Club of Kirkcaldy as they take on the challenge of a lifetime to raise funds for projects in Tanzania that the Rotary has been supporting. Bill, more renowned for his love of cars as opposed to hill walking, explained,”
Not being natural mountaineers we have been in training to raise our fitness for the event, though we are aware the threat of altitude sickness will be the biggest challenge.
He continued “We would like our effort to do more good than just allow us to bore our friends with stories about how long Mairead couldn’t wash her hair for or how sore my feet were.”
