Griffiths to scale Kilimanjaro

Peter Griffiths, chief executive of Principality, will attempt to climb to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in the new year to raise 20,000 for the NSPCC in Wales.

The five-day, 20,000-foot ascent to the peak of the world’s tallest free-standing mountain will commence on January 13, with the last leg starting at 2am to reach the summit by dawn. Griffiths is part of a 12-strong team facing the challenge, which also includes Welsh Rugby Union chairman David Pickering and Welsh rugby hero JPR Williams.
