Staff, volunteers, residents and trustees of Abigail Housing (a West Yorkshire baaed Housing charity accommodating refused asylum seekers in Bradford and recently recognised refugees in Leeds), will be collectively taking on the challenge of climbing in steps, Erta Ale, a volcanic mountain in the Afta region of northeastern Ethiopia.  We will achieve our 805 steps to the summit of this mountain either climbing the stairs, walking or stepping on the spot.  In addition one of our Directors has agreed to climb a different mountain each day over the 3 days!  The residents we support have faced many mountains to make their journey to safety and to seek sanctuary here in the UK, we therefore undertake this challenge in solidarity.
