Two Bryher women will be taking on the challenge of a lifetime this September by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Amy Langdon and Ginny Hulands are doing it to raise money for the Cornwall Air Ambulance and they’re organising a 10k Fun Run on Bryher next Sunday to help them reach their total.

The two women need to raise £8,000 for the trip and they’ve already reached 40% of that.

They’re hoping around thirty people will take part in the run, consisting of two laps of a figure-of-eight circuit around the island.

Amy described the event as a “mini Bryher Fete” and says there’ll be various stalls and a bouncy castle on offer.

She says unfortunately the day clashes with the Stride for Life, but hopes their smaller event won’t be affected by the larger run on St Mary’s.

Two other islanders, Rebecca Douglas and Warren Neil, will be joining the group of thirty from Cornwall attempting to climb the 5,900m mountain.

It’ll take 8 days in total and Amy and Ginny have started getting in training.

They’re running and mountain biking around Bryher and Amy says they’ve “climbed Samson Hill a couple of times.”

The Bryher 10k run is on Sunday 26th May, starting at 11am. If you’d like to sign up email Amy  on amylangdon.bryher@gmail.com or visit their website at justgiving.com.
