Challenge leader Nadia Craddock

Nadia Craddock

'I’m Nadia and the Bath University Kilimanjaro Challenge leader for The Children’s Society. In my final year at University of Bath, I wanted an opportunity to lead a challenging, fun and exciting project—and this trek was just that.

I have worked in the past with children from disadvantaged backgrounds and I know that I wanted to keep supporting young people. Work by The Children's Society that tackles poverty and neglect stood out to me, and empowered me to recruit 45 other students to join the Kilimanjaro team.

Climbing Kilimanjaro was such a moving and unforgettable experience. The best part about being a challenge leader is that I have helped to raise over £54,000.'
