    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.



    Hi, thanks for visiting our page.

    We are a group of 12 men and women from all over the UK who on 1st March 2019, set off on a 9 day trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

    Why? To raise, some much needed funds for the amazing charity - "MIND."

    The twelve of us are...


    We are a group from all walks of life with a simple (okay maybe not so simple) goal of reaching the summit of the world's highest free standing mountain at a whopping 5895 metres.

    Statistically we won't all make it to the summit, but we've never been a fan of statistics anyway and we have embarked on an intense training schedule to get each of us to peak fitness. That and the fact that this is a team built of some of the most ambitious, bloody minded individuals.

    Mind are truly, a lifeline to so many. You don't have to look too far to find somebody who's fighting a battle that so few would even realise. The world of late, is playing a game of catch up where Mental Health is concerned. There is more understanding than there has ever been but there is still work to be done.

    So our request of you...

    Please dig deep, perhaps with your loved ones or friends in mind, and help us raise a massive heap of money to support the absolutely crucial work that Mind do on a daily basis to support people like you and I through the toughest of times.

      WOW, WOW, WOW. Thank you so much everybody for your amazingly generous donations. The latest update today shows that together, we have smashed through £55,000. To say we are delighted is very much an understatement but we don't want to stop just yet - we can still do more. The team are just 'gently nudging' some of the kind people who have pledged sponsorship already and it still remains that even the smallest amount you can give, truly can make a massive difference. Thanks so much The #TREK4MIND team

      Hi everyone, just a quick update from us. The past few months have seen donations flooding in and it's true to say that we are absolutely smashing it. Unfortunately we are unable to show offline donations on this platform from corporate sponsors and fundraising events. Congratulations to the team for an amazing effort so far. We have a great many more fundraising events lined up and remember that everything we raise, is so generously doubled by Utility Warehouse! Thanks again The #TREK4MIND team

      Everybody, thank you so much from all of us, for your generosity. These are some very exciting times in that a great deal of work is taking place behind the scenes with fundraising (not all of which is shown on this platform. ) We are well on our way to reaching our target but we still need your help. please share far and wide in order to get the word out and we promise in the meantime that we are not resting on our laurels. We are on a mission to hand over a MASSIVE cheque to Mind in March next year xxx
