Boost for chefs' charity climb
16 August 2013
A team of top chefs – hoping to raise £50,000 to help combat hunger in Africa by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro – have landed a major sponsorship boost from hygiene supplies specialist Chemex.
Ashley Palmer-Watts, executive head chef of the Fat Duck Group and head chef at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal; John Freeman, Michelin two star head chef at Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham; Paul Foster, head chef at Tuddenham Mill, Newmarket and Paulo de Tarso, Senior Maitre D' at Bar Boulud in London will spend six days climbing 5,895m to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Their charity, Farm Africa, is dedicated to helping farmers in Africa unleash their potential to provide food for their communities.
Director of Chemex Sean Derrig said: "Having worked with Ashley and the Fat Duck Group since March 2009 we are delighted to support the chefs’ Kilimanjaro Challenge and to be working with this remarkable charity."
