£2,000 target

Ben has raised over £1,500 towards his target of £2,000 and was delighted to be given a further donation of £50 by the Chairman of Epping Forest District Council Councillor Liz Webster.

Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, is 5,895 meters high and around 40km wide and is the highest free standing mountain in the world.

Supporting the Herts Air Ambulance

Ben Usher said: “Supporting the Herts Air Ambulance was an easy choice for me. They are based at North Weald and I see daily how busy they are, carrying out life-saving work for the critically ill or injured people in the community. This important service relies solely on donations from the public.”

“I’d like to thank Chairman Liz Webster and everyone else who has kindly donated to my JustGiving page. Any donation big or small is greatly appreciated and it all goes a long way towards me reaching my goal, and ultimately saving lives.”
