Story

Ok so sh*t really is getting real now!

Since returning from a charity trip to Nepal last year i have been on a mission to raise £250,000 to build a spinal rehabilitation hospital over there. A years worth of fundraising events are culminating in this......An epic 18 day summit attempt of the highest trekking peak in Nepal, Mera Peak (6476m). 'Trekking' is definitely an optimistic word - with phrases like 'ice axes',  'crampons'  and ‘ insurance policies covering evacuation over 6000m' being thrown around so it's fair to say this is a Himalayan interpretation of a trek!

As well as trying to create a life changing project in Nepal, I am still on a personal exploration following a serious spinal cord injury in 2017. Since the accident i have realised the effect that the mountains have had on my recovery both physically and mentally so continue to push boundaries to change not only my perceptions but hopefully give hope to other people facing similar challenges in their lives. It's fair to say that this is BY FAR the most ambitious project to date.

The dream of standing on a 21,000ft mountain having climbed for over two weeks is real but is it possible and will it become a reality? We will have to wait and see!

Please help us achieve this dream, any donation no matter how small is massively appreciated!

Thank you for your support, it means a lot!
