A group of 11 students who are currently climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for charity has been left stranded after a travel firm went bust.
The collapse of travel company Student Adventures, run by GBCE Ltd, means that the youngsters will not have accomodation or travel booked for their remaining time in Tanzania, the Practical Action charity has been told.
As a result, the charity - which uses technology to challenge poverty in developing countries - has sent representatives from its Kenya and UK offices to offer support and advice, arrange accommodation and transport and ensure the students' safety before they return to the UK.
