I am 'attempting' (with a guide) to climb the Matterhorn in Switzerland, weather permitting August 7th / 8th  2019.The mountain is the most instantly recognisable in Europe and stands at 4,478m. I am NO climber, having only been on ropes a few times in my life, so apprehensive is a slight understatement! The summit ridge looks like a knife edge with very long drops either side, but I have to have a go for a good cause. Our daughter Milla was diagnosed when she was 18 months old, with a rare form of Epilepsy. Thankfully her form can be controlled quite well with medication, but there are many other children who have much more severe and debilitating forms. I would like to try and raise as much money as possible to support  https://www.youngepilepsy.org.uk, an organisation that supports and drives to provide better lives for young people that suffer from Epilepsy. 

Please give what you can and I will do the same by trying my best to reach the summit.

Greatly appreciated by me and all those at https://www.youngepilepsy.org.uk
