Scaling Kilimanjaro for charity

Dominic Watson is currently climbing to raise funds for VAO and Water Aid

Dominic Watson

Director of Myers La Roche, Dominic Watson, is currently climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for two charities, while also ticking the adventure off his bucket list.

Mr Watson aims to raise £2000 for Vision Aid Overseas and Water Aid by reaching the summit of the 5895-metre high mountain.

The 10-day challenge, which is organised by Advocate, is self-funded by Mr Watson, who hopes it will inspire others to create their own bucket lists.

Mr Watson is currently authoring his second book, titled The Rockstar Retirement Bucket List: A Bucket List for the Real World. He explained: “I want to personally experience another really huge bucket list adventure and really practise what I preach, showing people that absolutely anything is possible if you put your mind to it.”
