Kilimanjaro Celebrities See The Net Result

4 December 2009 | Jo Jenkins | Kilimanjaro

In March this year nine celebrities undertook the mammoth challenge of climbing the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for Comic Relief.
Thanks to the support of the British public their incredible effort raised over £3.5 million and this month six of the climbers will travel to Uganda to see for themselves how some of that money is helping to fight malaria, Africa’s biggest killer.
Ben Shephard, Chris Moyles, Fearne Cotton, Gary Barlow, Kimberley Walsh and Ronan Keating will be assisting with the distribution of half a million mosquito nets, and witnessing how these simple items can help save lives.
