Pendleton, sales account manager with the company, was part of a 15-member team from Saintfield Road Presbyterian church in south Belfast who took on the challenge for charity.

The group arrived in Nairobi on August 3 to start the climb of the Tanzanian peak, and by August 9 all members had made it safely to the top. Achieving a 100% success rate was an excellent result in itself, considering the average is just 60%.

Limited to taking just a back-pack of essential items, Pendleton proved himself to be a true salesman by picking the Meyer price list as one of his chosen pieces for the gruelling seven-day journey.

The climb raised much-needed funds for the church’s New Halls Project, the renal unit of The Royal Belfast Children’s Hospital, Marie Curie Cancer Fund and Diabetes UK.
