Don't have time to donate right now?


Alan aims to navigate the majestic hills and mountains of Wales, England, Scotland and beyond, without leaving his own garden. Alan will be raising money for Parkinson’s, Rotary and the local Parish church of Burghill.

Alan has been climbing the bank of his steep riverside garden to complete the same amount of steps as it would take to climb the mountains that he loves.

To complete this challenge Alan will climb the 120 circular steps around his garden on a daily basis. Since October 2020 Alan has climbed the Blorenge, the Sugar Loaf, the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons, Cadar Idris, Snowdon, Scafell Pike , Ben Nevis, Ben Mcdui , The Eiger, The Matterhorn, Mt Blanc and Mt Cook and is currently climbing cable Mountain in Tasmania. Alan has so far climbed over 45,000 steps, and counting. . Alan's aim is to climb the equivalent of Mt Everest by Christmas day.

Alan has been supporting and caring for his wife, Val, who has had Parkinson’s for over two decades. He has also been a member of the City of Hereford Rotary Club for more than 50 years and a keen fundraiser.
