The story behind our Mount Everest Challenge.......

Just over 2 years ago one of our closest and dearest friends, Paul Banton, at the age of 39 was diagnosed with MND (Motor Nurone Disease). His condition is terminal with between 6 months -5 years left of his life to spend with his beautiful wife and children.

Only 3 months prior to his diagnosis, Paul was made redundant from his job as a Managing Director at Polestar which has added additional financial stress to what is already a difficult time. Since that day Paul, his loving wife Vikki and their two amazing young children Jack,11 and 7 year old Max have embarked on an unthinkable battle taking each day as it comes.

Some days are better then others but the person who tells it best is his wife, Vikki who has started a blog as an outlet and to share their family’s story:

There’s Always A Way

This Man Can

Let it Go: A Frozen (Berry) Tale

We don’t know exactly how long we will be blessed with having Paul in our lives but we do know that we want to fill every second we can with amazing memories of seeing him and his family smile. Family days out, unexpected treats and the relief that his family will be supported when he can’t be there – that’s why we’re climbing Everest on the 4th October. Please donate generously.
