Select Lincolnshire member, LJ Fairburn has taken on one of their greatest challenges; a climb to the summit of Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro.
What are egg suppliers doing climbing mountains, you may ask? The team is aiming to raise an awe inspiring £35,000 in sponsorship for "Food for Good", a campaign set up by the food and hospitality sectors to support Farm Africa. The campaign has already raised over £750,000 for Farm Africa, a charity working to end hunger in eastern Africa by helping smallholder farmers there to grow more food for their families.
Mr Daniel Fairburn, Managing Director of LJ Fairburn, expressed his excitement about the adventure, "Challenges don't come much bigger than climbing Kilimanjaro. We're doing it because we recognise that hunger is one of the most pressing problems facing the world today. As someone involved in food production, I understand the importance of sustainable food supply. And that means helping to build an Africa that can feed itself. So I'm especially proud that LJ Fairburn is doing it's bit to help the food industry raise funds for 'Food for Good' which is doing so much to support Farm Africa and its amazing work to end hunger."
