Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

 

I am taking part in the Ben Nevis Midnight Challenge on July 5 2014 to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. I will doing the climb with my daughter Christina.

 

The challenge involves the night time ascent and early morning descent of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest peak at 4409 feet, over rough and rocky terrain and is a strenuous challenge requiring stamina and determination. I will be undertaking various forms of training in preparation for the event such as fell walking, cycling and gym work. 

 

Your support will help improve the lives of people suffering with dementia today and fund research to find a cure for tomorrow. 

 

Through JustGiving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly and safely processed and passed directly to the Alzheimer’s Society. JustGiving will claim gift aid on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Society where the donor is eligible for this. So please give generously to this very worthy cause, I really appreciate all your support and MANY THANKS for your donations.

Whinlatter and Borrowdale, Cumbria - 26th & 27th April.

Christina and I successfully completed the challenge,

It was tough going but it gave us both a great sense of achievement, the effort was worthwhile.
