Firefighter to Climb Kilimanjaro

Sandbach firefighter to climb Kilimanjaro for Firefighters Charity and North West Air Ambulance

A determined Sandbach firefighter has set his sights on climbing Africa’s highest mountain for charity.

John Brownrigg, watch manager at Sandbach Fire Station, has been an on-call firefighter for 20 years.

He will set off on his once-in-a-lifetime challenge to climb Mount Kilimanjaro on September 11 with all money raised going to the Firefighters Charity and North West Air Ambulance.

Kilimanjaro lies 205 miles south of the equator and stands on Tanzania’s northern border with Kenya.
John also needs to carry all his kit to cover the full seven days he will be there.

John said: “It’s a tough climb as Kilimanjaro is 19,340 feet above sea level, which is nearly five times the height of Snowdon and has tropical temperatures at the base to a freezing -26C at the snow-capped summit.

“I am doing this to raise money for two very good causes and would like anyone who can to please sponsor me.

“Help me to help those that help us.”

Good luck John!  If you need any advice, shoot me an email!

Reviews Are Coming In!

Reviews are starting to roll in for Murder on Kilimanjaro!  Check out these two reviews, and order your own copy by CLICKING HERE!

"A long time fan of Charles G. Irion's novels, this final book to his series made me wanting more. As I've been to the area he writes of, his attention to details of Africa is amazingly accurate. Combined with Irion's creative, dramatic writing this is a must read. Allow yourself plenty of time! You won't be able to put this book down." - Writing in Style, reviewer

"I read Murder on Kilimanjaro this weekend. One of those stories where you need to keep reading. I must say the action and environmental descriptions were wonderfully written putting you in the middle of the action. You could feel the fear and the struggle to stay alive. This is what every writer wants to achieve, transporting the reader from arm chair and into the action." - Jan O'Kane, reviewer
