Labelz superheroine scales Kilimanjaro.

In her day-to-day life Kerry Abbott handles compliance at leading Swindon printer Labelz. Away from work, she has been raising money for Prospect Hospice by scaling Africa’s highest mountain Kilimanjaro in Tanzania – the highest single free-standing mountain above sea level in the world no less.

To date, Kerry’s massive achievement has raised £1,395 for Swindon’s well-regarded hospice through her fundraising page on JustGiving.

As she explained before the climb: “I am doing something that is completely out of my comfort zone, I have never travelled or been on an aeroplane alone so this is very challenging for me.”

“So when this opportunity came up for me to climb Kilimanjaro I jumped at the chance to do something different, something that I have wanted to do.”

“My family and I had lost one of our amazing family members to a life taking, family crippling disease, she was the most loving, funny and down-to-earth person who made me feel part of the family 11 years ago and still did through to her last day.”

“She was the brightest star in the darkest night, the one who fought with all her might, for those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved so missed so very dear”

“No farewell words were spoken or time to say goodbye, our hearts still ache with sadness and secret tears run by, you’ll never be forgotten, forever in our hearts is where you will stay.”

“Help me show appreciation to this fantastic charity Prospect Hospice by donating.”
