Former Fleet defender and assistant manager Adrian Pennock is climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for a children’s hospice.
The ex-Gills skipper, who joined the Fleet as a player in 2003 and became Andy Ford’s assistant before taking the Welling manager’s job, is to scale the heights of Africa’s highest mountain on May 17. The mountain, 19,340ft high, borders Kenya and Tanzania.
He joins Stoke manager Tony Pulis and TV celebrity Nick Hancock in a bid to raise thousands of pounds for The Donna Louise Trust, a comprehensive children’s hospice service that provides respite and end-of-life care for children with life-threatening conditions.
