    Weʼve raised £1,333 to Meningitis Wales

    Cardiff, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 31st October 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I will be completing a Mount Everest challenge of Pen Y Fan for Meningitis Wales on behalf of my friends son Matthew Jenkins who contracted meningitis at 16, he is now 34 and continues to have treatment and support from the charity.

    Gillian Jenkins

    ''My son Matthew was 16 at the time and he is 34 now, he became ill with a cold and severe headaches, after many trips to the doctors he collapsed into a coma with a rare form of T.B Meningitis and encapililits, he survived a stroke, 2 heart attacks, and 4 brain operations and lost nearly all body mass, weighing 3stone 2 pound at his worst.

    He never really came home after that and spent the next years of his life in hospital and a special care home, he has brain damage, is partially sighted and suffered damage to his central nervous system and muscle wastage.

    He has overcome so much and I am eternally grateful because he is alive and lives a happy life, well cared for by his family and and his carers''

    So thats the story, and that's Pen Y Fan 5 times up and down a total distance of 8,860M the same height as Mount Everest.

    Thank you all that have helped out here so far, we managed a fantastic £900 your generosity is unbelievable.

    I want help, volunteers, fellow challenge acceptors all are welcome.

    You don't have to make it up 5 times but any help, support, fundraising we will be ever grateful for

    If anyone wants to take part in this challenge with me, let me know and we can sort out training etc.

    The challenge is not easy, will be September 15th so weather conditions need to be taken into consideration and I'm expecting it to be a physical 8-9 hours of climbing.
