Weʼre raising £500 to donate to charity by trekking up the tallest mountain in the UK.
- Ben Nevis, Scotland
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
If you know me (Fahima) well enough, you know that any sporting activity (unless it's leisurely badminton) has never been my cup of tea. But when the opportunity to sign up to trek Ben Nevis, Britain's tallest mountain came up, I'm not entirely sure if I was in a sane state of mind.
It's approximately 8 and half miles of mountainous terrain, climbing to 4,412.73 ft above sea level... Needless to say it'll be a real test of fitness, grit and stamina.. none of which I have. So I obviously signed up myself and on behalf of my terrified but supportive husband, Mahdi. Did I mention I have a fear of heights?
The idea is crazy, and it'll be something neither of us have ever done before in a bid to raise money for charity. With so many causes to support, we have a (hopefully reachable) target of £500, which we're hoping to donate to great charities we have worked with before.
We'd appreciate your love and support in helping us reach our target, even if donations are as little as £1, it's still something to help reach the target and charity given on your behalf.
*All 100% of the money will be donated to charity. In' shaa' Allah.
