Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On 2nd November, I set off to achieve my goal of becoming the first person from the Isle of Man to complete the Seven Summits Challenge, climbing the highest mountains in all seven continents.
I became the first person from the Island to reach the summit of Everest in May 2008, which was an incredible experience.
I'll be attempting the last of the seven 'highest' mountains, the imposing Carstenz Pyramid in Papua New Guinea, when I set off on my 21-day adventure..
At 15,629 feet (4,884 metres), it's the highest peak in Australasia and one of the most remote and daunting of the summits I have tackled.
If I reach the top, it will complete the mountain odyssey that began when I climbed Kilimanjaro with four colleagues from the Isle of Man Constabulary in 2000.
I have also climbed the highest mountains in Antarctica, North and South America and Europe, leaving just this last push to join an elite 'club' of only 230 climbers ever to achieve all seven summits.
I am raising money for Ronald McDonald House Isle of Man Families and Friends. The charity supports Ronald McDonald Houses all over the UK and these provide a home from home for families of sick and injured children at the time they most need it. Hundreds of Isle of Man families have stayed in one of the houses. It was the cause my colleagues and collected for when we climbed Kilimanjaro, so I am going full circle.
Thank you for supporting me in raising money for this superb cause.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
I am safely back in the Island and you'll be reading and hearing all about my adventure in the media. I managed to fit in an extra, unscheduled, mountain, too! The new photo shows me at the top of Carstenz Pyramid. Thanks for your donations - they mean a lot to such a great cause
Hi. On behalf of Phil, who is making his way back via various internal flights in Papua New Guinea and then via Bali, thank you for your generous donations. Phil will be doing further pieces with the media next week and talking all about his adventure.
You can follow my progress via www.adventureconsultants.com The expedition leader is posting regular photos and updates. Some of you may have had a problem opening this but Manx Telecom has fixed this now.
The Chief Minister also wished me luck and we will meet on my return, when I plan to give him the flag for display within Government buildings.
Chief Minister Allan Bell MHK yesterday gave me a flag to take on the final leg of my seven summits quest. The Manx flag has had 'patches' depicting each of the six completed summits sewn onto it and and the seventh patch will hopefully be able to be sewn on soon.
