Chefs' Kilimanjaro climb

The chefs at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro The chefs at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro

In August 2013 a group of top UK chefs and leading figures from the hospitality industry took on Mount Kilimanjaro in support of Farm Africa’s Food for Good campaign. Led by Michelin-starred Ashley Palmer-Watts, the team undertook the gruelling eight day climb to the roof of Africa which stands 5,895m above sea level. They were spurred on to achieve their goal in the knowledge they had raised over £50,000 which will help farmers across east Africa end hunger - for good. 

Ashley was inspired to take on this epic challenge after visiting one of Farm Africa’s projects in Kenya last year and seeing first-hand the impact our work is having on the lives of African farmers and their families.
