The Eist Cancer Support Centre held its ‘Help Us Climb This Mountain’ Thank You Evening on Tuesday last, the Climbers Rev. Peter Tarleton, Ben Condell, David Willoughby, Thomas Neale and Dick Murray scaled the 5,000 metres to the top of Mount Kenya in July of this year and in doing so raised a fantastic €41,000 for the Eist Cancer Support Centre. The climbers left Ireland in early July and reached the peak on July 16, which coincided with Rev. Peter’s 70th Birthday. All involved with the Eist Cancer Support Centre wish to sincerely thank our climbers who personally funded the complete cost of the trip, to all of our ‘Friends of Eist’ – everyone who supported the event, local businesses, schools, clubs, the local community and clients.
This amazing footage of the climb up Mount Kenya was taken by one of the Eist Climbers Ben Condell.
