-----------------------------------------------


It all started just over a year ago.  

We went to Wales and climbed Snowdon and I said 'This is fun, what's harder?'

At home, I searched online for 'highest mountains' and 'challenges' and learned about the 'Three Peaks Challenge'.

Mummy and Daddy said that I could only try this if I prepared properly.  

Since then, I have climbed Snowdon (twice more), Scafell Pike, the Pic du Midi (in the Pyrenees) and Ben Nevis.  This term I have been walking at least 10 miles every week.  And now, I'm ready to go!

On the weekend of 25th June, I will try to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon as quickly as I can.  If the weather is great and I feel OK, that might be in 24hrs.  If not, it may take longer.  

If you would like to sponsor me, please sponsor my attempt.  It may be that the weather is against us and it's not safe to get to the top of one, or all, of the mountains - but I've prepared well, and I promise that I will do my best on all of them.

If you do sponsor me, I'm raising money for Pratham - an educational charity which works mostly in poor communities in India.

I really want to help children in developing countries who aren't as lucky as me and who don't have a good school to go to.  Pratham is one of the most highly rated educational charities and provides reading support, pre-school places, libraries and teachers for the communities it supports.  It also provides vitamins and medicines to help keep young children healthy and tutoring for clever children to help them win scholarships to top schools.  

Thank you

Billy
