The Fraktul office will be quieter in June, as Andrew from our Marketing team heads to Africa to tackle the World’s highest free-standing mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro.
Andrew will be taking on this challenge in order to raise funds for SAMH (Scottish Association of Mental Health) and awareness of mental health in general.
It will be a very personal challenge for Andrew, who is doing this challenge in memory of childhood best friend, Sean Wallace, who sadly took his own life in 2012.
Andrew said, “Every year since his passing, Sean’s family and our friends’ group have organised a football tournament and a golf day, both of which to raise money for SAMH.
This year I wanted to go one better, to raise more funds and awareness for SAMH and mental health, all whilst setting myself a massive personal challenge.
Training for this challenge is ongoing. Whilst I may not be the fittest person in the world, the more support and backing I have behind me, the more motivated I will be to complete this challenge.”

Andrew concluded “Thank you in advance for any support or donations, it is very much appreciated, and it will all be going to a very worthwhile cause.”
