An optical family are busy preparing to take on Mount Kilimanjaro next month (20-26 September) to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Krishna Parmar and her two daughters, Amisha and Jyoti, who run Specsavers stores in Beeston, Ilkeston, Long Eaton and Eastwood, will be climbing the highest mountain in Africa.
The trio have been busy preparing for the 5,895-metre assent by taking on Snowdon and have plans to scale the Yorkshire Dales and the Three Peaks before they embark on their epic overseas fundraising trek.
‘The three of us were all keen to support the Alzheimer’s Society as it’s something that’s particularly close to our hearts,’ commented Krishna. ‘But we wanted a challenge and so when I first suggested the idea of Kilimanjaro, the girls thought I was mad, but I soon talked them round and now we’re excited, if a little nervous, about the trip.’
The Alzheimer’s Society provides information, support, funds research and creates lasting change for people affected by dementia. For more information www.alzheimers.org.uk.
