Mount Kenya for charity
Dr Richard Lindner of Old Buckenham is to climb Mount Kenya to raise money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH). Richard, who was Medical Officer at EACH's hospice at Quidenham for five years before he retired from Attleborough Surgeries last year, is hoping to climb Mount Kenya on Thursday 16 May. Pt Lenana on Mount Kenya stands at 4,950m (16,355ft). In order to spur him on in his training and to make the event even more worthwhile he is raising funds for East Anglia's Children's Hospices to support the organisation in the amazing work it does to alleviate the suffering of children with serious life threatening conditions and their families.
Richard will be flying to Kenya on Saturday 27 April and will initially be working with his son Andrew (ex Old Buckenham High School) and wife Anika who are both doctors currently doing voluntary work for an American charity in Chogoria, at the foot of Mount Kenya. Then on Monday 13 May they will be joined by other family members and friends and will set off on the five-day trek.
If you would like to support Richard in his fundraising you can donate any sum, large or small, to EACH via his web site www.justgiving.com/Richard-Lindner
