Earlier this year, a flag for the International Year of Co-operatives made it up to the top of Everest. Now, a team of Canadian co-operators has done the same for Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, and raised good money for the Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada in the process.
Jo-Anne Ferguson, Lydia Phillips and Ingrid Fischer, who work for our sister organisation, the Canadian Co-operative Association, reached the summit a fortnight ago.
All power to you.
I am a rambler, not a climber but you certainly make our UK team outings seem rather tame.
