Story

Thank you to everyone for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page and for supporting for my year of challenges in aid of Greenfingers Charity.

My challenge began last year when a friend asked me if I would join him on a demanding trek in Nepal. Always up for a challenge I said yes only to then find out I would be living under canvas for the duration! The trek took us to 250 kilometers in the Nepalese mountains over 24 days.

This year, less than two months since returning from Nepal my challenge continues as I now take on Mt Kilimanjaro over an 8 day trek. 

I will be ascending to around 6000m to reach the summit and staying in no frills accommodation throughout whilst battling with the enormous physical demands of the trek. 

YES it's going to be tough, but I am I doing it to support a GREAT cause. 

As a supporter of Greenfingers Charity, I have seen the difference the charity makes to the lives of children living with life limiting conditions. The  charity creates magical, inspiring and therapeutic gardens for children and their families who spend time in hospices AND they have a waiting list of hospices who need their help now.  

By sponsoring me, not only will I be your friend for life, your donation will go towards Greenfingers "A Million Moments Appeal" which aims to raise £1m to enable the charity to build 15 more gardens for children who spend time in hospices.
