Busy schedules...looming deadlines...seemingly endless phone calls, emails and meetings...the everyday life of an Account Manager already sounds like quite a bit to contend with, so you'd expect a holiday to be the time to kick back and relax.
Not for our intrepid Account Manager, Sarah King. She's left the advertising and marketing world behind for a week or two to conquer the one and only Mount Kilimanjaro!
Sarah's off up Kilimanjaro's mountainous slopes and tricky terrain with her family for a 'holiday' with no frills; 9 days of sleeping, eating and walking under the open sky. Her quest will take her higher than she’s ever been - physically and mentally – hoping to reach the near 20,000ft summit; contending with temperature extremes from +37°C to -30°C and battling altitude sickness.
Sarah's doing this for a very admirable reason - she's raising money for the charity TWIGS (Therapeutic Work In Gardening Swindon). TWIGS do amazing work helping people suffering from mental health problems regain their self-esteem and confidence to help them get back into work or further education.
All of us at Halesway are incredibly proud of Sarah's determination and we're supporting her all the way. If you'd like to hear about Sarah’s amazing feat and donate a sum for a very worthy cause, click here:
We'll keep you posted on Sarah's progress so look out for future Breeze posts.
