Bond set to climb Kilimanjaro

Gaining wider public awareness of the need to recycle can sometimes feel like climbing a large mountain. So that is exactly what British Material Recycling Association (BMRA) President George Bond has decided to do.

"It was my idea to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. As president, I feel it's important to present opportunities to develop and help people. It's character building and gives us an opportunity to give exposure to the recycling industry and help a children's charity."

George, a keen climber, and a team of ten BMRA members will attempt to conquer the highest freestanding mountain in the world with the target of raising £25,000 for The Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, Birmingham.

The climb is in October and the sponsorship donation will be made at the BMRA half yearly dinner on 30 November in Birmingham.

All sponsor companies will be recognised. For more information, visit
