The Massey Ferguson banner was hoisted proudly aloft at the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania when the UK’s National Farmers Union’s charity climbers reached the summit after a gruelling six-day trek.
With Gold Sponsor status, Massey Ferguson gave full backing to the NFU’s Africa 100 team who made the ascent in aid of Farm Africa.The team included eight intrepid explorers from across the food and farming industry. Along with the personal challenge to climb what is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, the team spearheaded the fund-raising effort for the charity Farm Africa which works towards a prosperous rural Africa through the empowerment of smallholder farmers.“As a headline Gold Sponsor of this exciting NFU initiative, we were thrilled to hear that the team had conquered the summit,” says Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson Brand Development Manager. “Farm Africa does fine work helping farmers employ the best techniques to develop their agricultural enterprises in a continent where sustainable food production lies at the heart of future economic prosperity and security.”If you would like to donate to the NFU Farm Africa Appeal visit the Virgin Money Just Giving page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/NFUAfrica100
