Story

Hi everyone,

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at our page. I am one of the fortunate ones that has had the opportunity to visit the endangered mountain gorillas twice- once in Rwanda and once in Uganda. Anyone who knows me will have been bored to death with my stories of these trips. 

I have always been obsessed with these incredible creatures and have been fundraising for the charity for some years now, including taking part in the Manchester 10k in full suit chasing a banana and also participating in the Great Gorilla Run, taking place this September in London, www.greatgorillarun.org 

In October 2016, I was appointed Global Ambassador for the Gorilla Organization and immediately started thinking about what I could do in the UK to support this great charity. There are fewer than 900 mountain gorillas in the wild and so to raise awareness, we thought we would climb the three highest mountains in the UK wearing gorilla suits. We will be doing this over one weekend in June, so thanks for your support and check back to see some great pics. 

Thanks

Jon, Chris, Lee and Paul
