Thanks for taking the time to visit my Just Giving page.
In March 2015, I will be attempting to climb to the summit of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, which will take a total of 69 days.
In the run up to Everest, I am hoping to complete a number of charity events, including climbing Snowdon FIVE times in one day on Saturday 7th June, which is a total height of almost 18,000 feet!
I have previously trekked 100 miles to the North Pole in -40C temperatures, raising money for ‘Wishing on a Star’ charity, have climbed to the summit of Kilimanjaro, and at the start of 2014 almost reached the summit of Aconcagua in Argentina when it was closed due to avalanches, and was stopped just 200m from the top!
This year I am fundraising for Claire House Children’s Hospice, who care for children and young adults with life limiting illness, and their families, from across Merseyside, Cheshire, West Lancashire, North Wales and the Isle of Man.
Claire House currently cares for over 190 families, both at the Wirral-based facility and in the community. The families that Claire House support see the hospice as a home-from-home environment, and couldn’t live their lives as positively without Claire House and their fantastic nursing staff.
Claire House has nurses on call 24-hours a day, provides an environment that is full of positivity, laughter and joy, offers end of life care when needed, and looks after the entire family, now and forever.
Please support me as I attempt to climb Mount Snowdon for such a worthy cause.
