Rodgers of B. Rogers Plumbing & Heating Limited in Heybridge, Essex explained: “I am climbing Kilimanjaro in the name of my close friend Lee Blowers, who sadly passed away on Dec 8th 2015 from leukaemia. He was 34 years old and we grew up together in our local village, Latchingdon in Essex. He was a great man and was inspiring in what he went though and showed me the meaning of what life is all about.”

Rodgers has set a fundraising target of £10,000.00 and confirmed that all funds will be donated to Leukaemia Care UK to help fight the battle to cure the disease.

Rodgers is training hard for the climb and has recently completed the Three Peak Challenge in winter conditions. He will fly out to Tanzania on June 16th and will be away for ten days. As well as having such a poignant reason to take on this personal and physical challenge, Bradley has chosen to climb Kilimanjaro because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity and he believes life is for living!

Rodgers summed his feelings up: “This means the world to me and I’m going all out to make it to the top.”

Peter McBride, Bradley’s area sales manager, is rooting for him: “Bradley has set himself an incredible challenge for an admirable cause and I know he will do really well! You can do it Bradley! All of us at Baxi will be cheering you on!”
