Employees from food company Moy Park will trek to the top of North Africa’s highest mountain in October in aid of Farm Africa, a charity which is tackling the roots of hunger in rural Africa by giving African farmers the skills and tools they need to feed the continent's people.

The Moy Park team will be taking on Mount Toubkal in Morocco to raise funds, and will be joined in the challenge by teams from the UK food sector to support Africa's smallholder farmers. "This year's Farm Africa mountaineering challenge, to climb to the summit of Toubkal, will give our team members the opportunity to get involved in something we have never attempted before," said Caolon Brady, one of the climbers and business unit leader at Moy Park. "Climbing North Africa's highest peak will be a real test of our stamina and team work, but we are all extremely excited about taking on the challenge."
