Tim Ralph, 53, a retired fireman from Harrogate, is set to climb Mount Vinson in Antarctica, to raise money for Henshaws Yorkshire, a charity which supports visually impaired and disabled people.
When the experienced mountaineer reaches the 4,897m summit he will have scaled the highest mountains on six of the seven continents - known as the Seven Continental Summits - with just Mount Everest left to conquer.
Tim, a father-of-two, started working for Henshaws Yorkshire community housing earlier this year and has been so impressed by the charity that he has chosen it to benefit from his expedition.
The intrepid adventurer will embark on his gruelling journey to Antarctica in mid-November and aims to be back for Christmas.
Aiming to raise as much money as possible for Henshaws Yorkshire, Tim is looking for sponsorship from individuals and businesses ahead of his trip.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor Tim: Henshaws Society for Blind People gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
