MOUNTAIN MAN: Radlett resident takes on climb of Kilimanjaro in latest adventure

 Published on: 20th August 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Radlett resident is taking on an epic climbing challenge in aid of charity.

Bob Bhania is a patron of the Rafiki Thabo Foundation, a charity supporting children in Uganda, Lesotho and Kenya to reach their full potential through education, which has organised the climb of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Alongside fellow patrons Amar Latif, a blind TV presenter, and Harry Baker, who plays for England’s cerebral palsy team, Bob is leading the quest up the tallest peak in Africa.

His co-leader is Kami Rita, the legendary Sherpa guide who holds the record for most ascents of Everest’s summit. They will be joined by Rafiki Thabo graduates Ayiesa and Derek, fundraiser Janne Pilbeam, and CBeebies presenter Maddie Moate.

Through the challenge, the group are aiming to raise money for the Rafiki Thabo Foundation.

Bob is also hoping that the climb will contribute to his ongoing bid to complete the Explorer’s Grand Slam – an adventurer goal to reach both poles of this Earth and climb the seven highest summits.

The expedition began on August 18, and will come to an end on August 31.
