The team, who have called themselves the ‘Drain Gang’, will embark on the seven-day trek to raise money for WaterAid, Breast Cancer Care, Macmillan Cancer Support and Help for Heroes.

John Wilson and Phil Green from Saint-Gobain PAM UK and Simon Bennett from Saint-Gobain Weber, will climb to an altitude of 5,895 metres and are undergoing an intense training schedule to ensure they can conquer the challenging climb.

Wilson says: “This climb will definitely be one of the most challenging events I have taken part in, but it is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I couldn’t turn down and of course, we have been able to raise money for four great causes.

“It has been very inspiring to receive so much support from friends, family and others who believe in these charities as much as we do. Even through long training days, we are still looking forward to see what Mount Kilimanjaro has in store for us this September.”
