Klimb is a group of energetic people who want to raise lots of money for two charities by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Klimb are aiming to raise money to improve the quality of life for children in the UK and Africa through Chance UK and TAS. We will be hosting a variety of FUNdraising events throughout the summer leading up to a sponsored climb of Mount Kilimanjaro in October 2011.

We’re lucky. We’d like to make a difference to those who aren’t.

Please help us by making a donation!

Thank You for your charity LOVE!

Days to go!


Congratulations to Klimb's Keith and Kingsley for organising such a great event last night. 
A full house made bids on some terrific pieces of artwork from a wide variety of artists. A final flurry of manic bidding caused near punch ups to get the most popular artworks! Klimb's treasure and treasurer, the lovely Leanne is still counting the money raised. 
We had Crazy Cat Caroline selling those bags and badges, Glamour puss Chloe (and her mum) flogging the raffle tickets (Now who won the X factor tickets?)  Hot DJ Mark spinnin' the discs plus Miss Pauline and Garry Guess holding the bar and of course, Klimb's head chef Mr Garner Banana whipping the punters into a fever on the microphone. A great night to boost team Klimb UP THE MANJARO!

Richmond Hill Walk

Training continues....!


With only one week to go until the intrepid Klimb team leave the UK, all the stops are being pulled to generate money for our charities! 
Join us on the 4th at the ART AUCTION, an event promising to be a GEM of a night with lots of great art to bid for from established artists, professional illustrators, photographers and designers as well as talented new comers. See our previous blog entry for full details and make it a date.
Can't make the 4th? Then help us achieve our goals by clicking on the links and donate some cash! A little goes a long way and our charities are waiting for your help.

Meanwhile, Klimb's crazy cat Caroline has been in the kitchen baking Klimb Cookies and selling them to those lovelies at M&S.

The lovely Pauline has been busy flogging our stylishly fashion conscious bags and badges and top chef Susie Cup Cakes has been busy knocking up delights in her kitchen too. More details on that when I get 'em.

We're working hard, please support us in our final week before we climb!

Cup the Manjaro!

Susie sweet tooth Gibson has been putting her culinary talents to work for our charities by baking Kili Cup Cakes for the staff at her office. Those luscious cup cakes brought in a tasty £180. 
On a roll with the cooking, Susie knocked up a Master Chef worthy Paella for TEN hungry folks and made another £190.
Now all they need is a bag and a badge to go with it.

Just take a look at these mouth watering babies! DELICIOUS!

The BIG Klimb Children's Book Illustration Auction

The Children's Book Illustration Auction raised a mountainous £7000 + !
All thanks goes to the talented illustrators who donated artwork to the auction. It made a fantastic collection of artwork any West End gallery would be proud of. Thank you to those who came, made bids and bought on the night. Not only did we go home with great art, we helped a whole bunch of kids and had fun doing so too.
A special thanks to Sarah McIntyre who drew to order at the "Draw Whatever You Like" easel and Neil from PLANarama for manning the SPIN&WIN! and to everyone who contributed. 
And of course, Klimb's very own Simon Garner for being such a terrific auctioneer!
Thank you to...
The lovely Vera Casali and the staff at CORE
Becky Chilcott
Emily Bannister and those at Caterpillar and Little Tiger Press
Walker Books, Scholastic, Random House Children's Books and The AOI.
