Follow Little Mix’s Jade and Leigh-Anne as They Hike Mount Kilimanjaro for Charity
The two singers have taken on hiking for a good cause.
Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have joined together to climb the highest mountain in Africa. They, along with other British stars, joined the #ReturntoKili mission to raise funds for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day. Comic Relief is a British charity focused on eliminating poverty, particularly in Africa, and the organization hosts a yearly event, Red Nose Day, dedicated to collecting donations to fund their projects. Jade and Leigh-Anne are hoping to get their fans and others to donate to the cause by overcoming the harsh conditions and challenges of climbing Kilimanjaro for a full 8 days.
The two girls are currently on day Day 4 and they are pushing through. They have hiked with rain pouring down on them and Jade has even gone through some terrible altitude sickness but they are still going. We don’t know how they are doing it.

Day four of #ReturnToKili and an update from @jadethirlwall. She says the last twelve hours have been the hardest so far for her with altitude sickness kicking in – vomiting, nausea, temperature. And to top it all off a blister on her toe! 😩 . But she’s feeling positive today and soldiering on in the knowledge that she and the rest of Team Kilimanjaro are out there raising money for #RedNoseDay, which will help Comic Relief to continue supporting projects – and making people’s tough lives better – in the UK and around the world. . So don’t forget to cheer them on now with a donation, click the link in our bio.
Leigh-Anne and Jade could not be more inspirational as they trek through the rough terrain in order to make other people’s lives better. We hope that they continue their journey in high spirits and can’t wait for them to make it to the very top.
