Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight Children's Foundation works to brighten the lives of seriously and terminally ill children by granting their wishes and providing entertainment in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.


5 men, 10 legs, 3 market research agencies, not many hair follicles, 1 goal: to climb Great Britain’s highest big hill.

Welcome to the ‘Nevis Gonna Give You Up’ Just Giving page. Four scant weeks ago an idea germinated in the twisted mind of Tim Jarvis.  He believed that it would be a good idea to climb the UK’s highest mountain – Ben Nevis.

Surprisingly, instead of being ridiculed for being unfit / insane, other (fool) hardy souls have signed-up to be part of this epic journey, namely – Shaun Seeley, Mathew Williams, Babor Ahmed and Simon Meier-Beck. Together we are the ‘Nevis Gonna Give You Up’ team.

The initial motivation was ‘man versus nature’ but the justification was charity.  Through the Starlight Children’s Foundation, we aim to help serious and terminally ill children by granting their wishes.

As their wish is unlikely to be seeing random strangers climb Ben Nevis, we would be most grateful if you could donate in order to make the conquering of this stony giant even more worthwhile.

Thank you for your help.
