My name is Harry Welch. I am 10 years old and live in North
Yorkshire and I am raising sponsorship money for Project Mala. I think it is a good
idea to raise money for Project Mala because the children will get to go to school
and learn lot of subjects like me. It makes me think I'm really lucky at my school
in Terrington. We are trying to raise £900 between us.
To do this I am going to try and climb the highest mountain in Morocco at the end
of July with my dad, my friend Alexander Sulyok and his dad. The mountain is over
4,000m high and it is going to take us 3 days - I can't wait.
More details about the expedition can be found here Click here for the progress report
24-7-2011 : Arrived imlil at 1700m and after a great supper of
Moroccan soup, chicken tagine and sweet melon we contemplate a 0500h start tomorrow
morning up the hill.
27-7-2011 : At 0900H on 27th July 2011, Harry Welch and Alexander
Sulyok stood on top of Jebel Toubkal at 4,167m having started for the summit at
0530H - a fantastic achievement. Starting in the dark with a chill wind they climbed
with head torches until the sun rose in spectacular fashion lighting the mountains
with a warm orange glow. The view from the top was expansive looking over the anti
atlas mountains towards the Sahara. The boys even raised some sponsorship at the
top from fellow summiteers and were by far the youngest attempting the mountain
29-7-2011 : On their way down.
