City worker Nick Parrott has swapped skyscrapers for mountains – Africa’s tallest, to be exact.
Nick, 29, took on an adventure of a life-time by climbing the Kilimanjaro and raising more than £2,800 for Beckton charity, Richard House Children’s Hospice.
At first Nick was planning to attempt the trek with a group of friends, but when no one else signed up, he decided to do it on his own but after arriving ended up in a group of 29, who took seven days to get to the top.
He said: “I will say that doing something like this, as challenging as it was, is literally the trip of a lifetime.
“Raising money for such a worthwhile cause and achieving what I set out to do just made everything that much better.
“I would recommend anybody to take on a similar challenge and I am already planning my next one.”
