Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland.

Our annual Mountain Challenge returns again this year and we would like to invite you to get involved, to challenge yourself and raise vital funds to support communities in Kenya.

Whether you have taken the challenge before, or are completely new to it, we would very much like you to join us.

This year’s fundraising Mountain Challenge takes place on Saturday, 18th August 2018

There are 2 options available this year:

  • Challenge yourself to climb Mount Brandon, the highest peak, at 952m, of the Dingle Peninsula in Country Kerry, Ireland.
  • Keep to a lower level on Brandon following part of the Dingle Way taking in Baile na Abha, Baile Breac, Cloch Ogham and Piaras Mór over a 5 hour walk.

Experienced and qualified personnel will lead the climb and the walk. Both walks have spectacular views and the area is steeped in history, mythology and stunning wildlife.

The cost to take part is €60 and your donations will support rural communities in Kenya to:

  • Live healthier lives
  • Improve school sanitation
  • Keep girls in school
  • Fund water schemes
  • Gain skills to increase household incomes
