Watch the Kilimanjaro climb as Ken Finlayson and Tim Molony close in on their £55,000 Dentaid target.
Last week we heard from Ken Finlayson on his return from climbing the highest mountain in Africa.
Speaking after the event he said: ‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank the dental community from the bottom of my heart for the amazing level of support we have received for our Kilimanjaro climb.
‘So far, the dental world has raised an amazing £52k+ for FMC’s Kilimanjaro climb for a Dentaid mobile clinic to honour Kimberley Finlayson, my late wife and co-founder of FMC.
‘This is the largest amount ever raised by a dental charity for one event. It bears huge testimony to the generosity and spirit at the heart of UK dentistry.’
The team braved freezing conditions and sleepless nights to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro.
As Ken points out: ‘The effects of altitude sickness made their mark from 12,000 feet right up to the 20,000 feet summit – and back!’
Despite this they summited on the 24 February in the early morning at 6:22am.

And there is still time to donate and help the team reach its £55,000 target.
