Bradley Rogers, Baxi installer and member of the Baxi Works loyalty scheme, will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in June to raise money for Leukaemia Care UK.

Bradley, of B. Rogers Plumbing & Heating in Heybridge, Essex, explained: "I am climbing Kilimanjaro in the name of my close friend Lee Blowers, who sadly passed away on 8 Dec 2015 from Leukaemia. He was 34 years old and we grew up together in our local village, Latchingdon in Essex. He was a great man and was inspiring in what he went though and showed me the meaning of what life is all about."

Bradley has set a fundraising target of £10,000.00 and confirmed that all funds will be donated to Leukaemia Care UK, to help fight the battle to cure the disease.

Bradley is training hard for the climb and has recently completed the Three Peak Challenge in winter conditions. He will fly out to Tanzania on 16 June and will be away for 10 days. As well as having such a poignant reason to take on this personal and physical challenge, Bradley has chosen to climb Kilimanjaro because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity and he believes life is for living!

Bradley summed his feelings up: "This means the world to me and I'm going all out to make it to the top."

Peter McBride, Bradley's area sales manager, is rooting for him: "Bradley has set himself an incredible challenge for an admirable cause and I know he will do really well! You can do it Bradley! All of us at Baxi will be cheering you on!"
