Kate & Keith are proud to announce they have submitted Kilimanjaro, the worlds tallest free standing mountain in aid of Perennial –the UK’s only charity dedicated to helping people who work in horticulture when times get tough.
After five days of climbing, tents & long drops, below freezing temperatures and suffering with altitude sickness, it really was the kind donations and key sponsors, Thompsons & Deepdale as well as the good work that Perennial does that kept them moving to the top!
Both Kate & Keith have said it is the hardest challenge they have ever undertaken including building three story gardens at RHS Chelsea. Africa has left a very big imprint on their hearts and they both feel very honoured to have completed this challenge on behalf of Perennial.

Kate & Keith both embarked on this epic journey to raise funds for a charity which they believe is vital for the industry. The enormity of the task weighed heavily upon them but as soon as clients, friends & suppliers got behind them, generously donating and expressing words of encouragement they were determined to not let anyone down. They were thrilled when they reached their original target of £9000 while out in Tanzania but are hoping with a little extra push from the public and trade they can totally smash it and raise their total to £10K their fundraising page is still live until the 14th October and they would appreciate any support to raise fund for this fantastic charity. Every extra £500 means Perennial can provide a full set of tools to someone who may not be able to work and earn a living without them.
