On Monday morning 13 th September 2010 at around 6.30am, the  Captains Climb team reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.  Extremely tired, cold but triumphant!   

It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, so worthy of the donations received.  On that note  I would like to say a huge thank you 'diolch in fawr' to everybody who supported me and the Stepping Stones appeal by donating. 

I would like to extend a special thanks to Sue Brooks, Simon Webber, Peter Thomas, Mike Simms, ‘Howard’, the members of the New Pendragon Fund Raising Fund together with all at the Cardiff Blues Premier Club that have help make his fund-raising efforts such a success.

The climb has so far raised a staggering £300,000, which is amazing!


You can still help by purchasing the Official Captains Climb DVD which is out now priced at just £10.  To order your DVD please visit or call 029 2031 6211.  Alternatively, some of the Captains will be signing copies of the DVD's, so come along and pick up a copy...the perfect Chrismtas present or stocking filler!  

1st Dec: The Old Arcade, Cardiff from 7pm with Rob Howley & Warren Gatland

8th Dec: The Duke of Wellington, Cowbridge from 7pm with Ieuan Evans & Jonathan Humphreys


9th Dec: The Yard Bar & Kitchen, Cardiff from 7pm with Garin Jenkins and myself


The team are now focusing on reaching the target of £1m for Velindre Cancer Centre’s Stepping Stones Appeal, raising awareness about lung cancer and funding research.
