Mountain Man

Blaser Mills partner Tony Tollinton is climbing Mount Kilimanjaro this month to raise money for the Chiltern Multiple Sclerosis Centre (

The Chiltern MS Centre helps hundreds of MS sufferers in Herts and Bucks, providing physiotherapy and reflexology as well as general support. With yearly running costs of around £500,000, the Centre relies mainly on private donations and fund-raising.

The Centre is in the middle of a major fund-raising project to replace its existing temporary building at the former RAF Halton site near Wendover with a purpose-built building due to be completed next year.

Kilimanjaro is the largest mountain in Africa and the world’s highest free standing peak. There is no guarantee of success – altitude sickness on Kilimanjaro (5,895 metres) is fairly common because there is so little time to acclimatise.
