Staff from The Foot Clinic to climb National Three Peaks for Mikoroshoni Primary School

Date published: 16 July 2019

Staff from The Foot Clinic in Middleton will climb the National Three Peaks to raise money for a Kenyan primary school on Saturday 20 July.

Stuart Healey, Adam Healey and Adele Murphy, of the Long Street podiatrists, will be taking on the tallest mountains in Great Britain – Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland – in under 24 hours to raise funds for the Mikoroshoni Primary School in Shanzu village, Mombasa.

Mikoroshoni Primary School provides free local education for children from the very poorest of families, who might otherwise never attend school, through the Friends of Mikoroshoni Primary School charity.

The group, who will be driven by Jennifer Quinn, said: “As well as doing sterling work educating children from impoverished backgrounds, they also have a feeding programme, to make sure the children receive at least one meal a day. All proceeds will go to supporting this initiative.

“As always, we thank you for giving us your support and helping us make a difference.”

The total walking distance of the National Three Peaks is 23 miles (37km) and the total ascent is 3,064 metres (10,052ft) – twice the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, over a similar total walking distance.

The Friends of Mikoroshoni Primary School was established in 1996 after John and Yvonne Brooker, ex-teachers from Middleton, travelled to Mombasa with friends, John and Pat Lloyd, for a holiday.

Former Mikoroshoni Primary School student Rehema Ngumbao graduated with a degree in law from the University of Nairobi in December, after studying a five-year law degree course funded by sponsors found through the charity.
