Final Fundraising Push!

We are beyond delighted about the progress The Ascenders have been making. We woke up to the incredible news today that […]

Why are we doing this?

In January 2018, Autovista Group set an incredible challenge for our employees: the opportunity to team up with colleagues from all around the business and climb Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro.
Chosen to take part were 34 staff from across the Group – each with a charity fundraising target of €2000 and four mountains to climb! As part of the preparation, our challengers will do the UK’s 3-Peak Challenge before setting off to tackle Kilimanjaro.
Our four objectives:
  1. Personal Development
  2. Team-building
  3. Fundraising
  4. Climb the Mountain

A beautiful snippet of the jungle we walked through yesterday #learningonthewayup

Had to share this pic from Friday night! This is us waiting to see if our luggage was on the next KLM flight- the day after we arrived, and hours before the climb @autovista_group #kilimanjarochallenge #learningonthewayup

So thankful for these guys. Meet Nelson, Everest and John. They helped me achieve something that I never thought that I could do #learningonthewayup #feelingthankful @autovista_group #Kilimanjarochallenge

Just back from seeing off the Ascenders at the first camp. I’m in awe of the team, the local guides and porters. Such determination and will to support each other beat the mountain #feelinglucky @autovista_group #Kilimanjarochallenge #learningonthewayup

First day #learningonthewayup
on our #Kilimanjarochallenge with
@autovista_group and the
Arrival at Simba Camp on 2,671 m AMSL. Impressive day!

Best of luck to the first group as #AutovistaClimbsKili waves off #TeamAscenders on their epic journey up the mountain. Enjoy!

We met children yesterday, coming back from school. Heard them singing before seeing the bus. Thanks to them for sharing their joy with us.

And now we are on the way to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Day 1: By bus from Weru Weru Lodge at Moshi to Rongai on the Kenyan border and up there to Simba Camp.
