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 week ago we were almost on our ways back home again, enjoying the last view on the mountain we've actually been to the top of https://t.co/zswcXj5OJi #learningonthewayup @autovista_group

A beautiful spot for reflecting on last week’s achievements. #learningonthewayup #autovistaclimbskili #autovistateamtwende

Climbing mountains is exhausting but being with great colleagues makes it so much more bearable #learningonthewayup

Will miss these incredible sunrises! #autovistaclimbskili #lifetimeadventure

Exactly a week ago I took a picture of Kilimanjaro from the hotel. Here is the shot today and it is slightly surreal that I have now been to the top and back. #learningonthewayup just how tough it was on summit day. Amazing endurance from all 12 of #teamtwende

#teamtwende all back safely at the hotel #Learningonthewayup #autovistaclimbskili
