Sponsored climb of Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of LOROS

In September of last year the Alchemy family was left devastated following the death of our much loved Managing Director Sandra Phillipson, following her intrepid and spirited 9 month battle against cancer. Geoff & Kelin Phillipson (Sandra’s husband & daughter) have been working on a project to raise money & awareness for an invaluable institution that was such a comfort to San in her final days.

LOROS specialises in hospice care and, in order to help them to (www.LOROS.com) continue caring so compassionately for people in need, we would like to support them by raising funds.


In homage of San’s unfailing zest for life, Geoff and Kelin haven’t chosen a ‘sponsored bake off’ or a 5 km run but instead have chosen to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, North Africa in aid of LOROS. Leaving the UK a week today on the 7th July 2011, they’ll embark on their monumental challenge to the very peak of Kilimanjaro, THE WORLD’S highest free standing mountain!

Committed to raising a MINIMUM of £7,000 for LOROS. They are now less that £1000 short of reaching their target, a week before they are due to depart the UK! Any donation you feel able to afford would be very much appreciated. In order to do this please go to http://www.justgiving.com/Kelin-Phillipson and sponsor them via the personal sponsor website. Words of encouragement would also be appreciated! They’re going to need it.

Thank you in advance for all your kindness and support.

Let’s help them reach their target!!!
