Join The Wander Bhoys' Kilimanjaro Climb for Celtic FC Foundation

Monday 26th February 2018

LIFELONG Celtic supporter Frank Gilhooley has previously cycled across Western Australia and hiked the West Highland Way, but now he plans to take on the challenge of a lifetime.

He will lead an adventurous group of supporters on a trek up Mount Kilimanjaro and he has nominated Celtic FC Foundation as beneficiary of the funds raised.

Scottish actor Frank, who is currently starring in River City and is also known for his roles in Still Game and Outlander, will head up the Celtic contingent known as ‘The Wander Bhoys’, in embarking on an 11-day journey, in the spring of 2019.

Kilimanjaro, situated in North East Tanzania, is the highest walkable mountain in the world and offers a truly unique challenge. Check out the video for more information on ‘The Wander Bhoys- Kilimanjaro Challenge’.

The cost of the trip will be £2,750 per person and each volunteer will also be tasked with raising a minimum of £1,000, as a charitable contribution to Celtic FC Foundation.

Participants must be aged 18 or over on the day of departure.

 The package includes:

  • Return flights from central Scotland and transfers when in Africa
  • Hotel accommodation and food
  • Mountain guides
  • Doctors
  • Insurance
  • A celebratory party after completion of the trek

The cost of the trip can be covered by each individual or alternatively, ‘The Wander Bhoys’ would encourage businesses and supporters’ clubs to consider sponsoring representatives to take part.

Speaking of the Kilimanjaro Challenge, Frank said: “Having supported Celtic all my life, I’ve been inspired so often not only by the Celtic greats down the years, but also by the masses of Celtic fans I’ve met all over the planet. I feel so blessed by my experiences in life, and to be part of the great Celtic Family.

“I wanted to do something that combined the famous kindness of the Celtic support, with a life-changing challenge. Climbing the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is the perfect adventure to meet this goal and also raise essential funds for Celtic FC Foundation, who will make sure it goes to where it is needed most.

“I’d love as many of the Celtic Family to join me as possible and together we will proudly stand atop Mount Kilimanjaro, having hopefully raised a significant amount for the Foundation.”
