Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. In June 2019, I plan to climb Mont Blanc for the Oak and Furrows. Standing at 4808m above sea level in the Alps, Mont Blanc is the tallest mountain in Western Europe and will prove to be a difficult challenge and alpine climb. My mother, Serena Stevens is the founder of the Oak and Furrows Wildlife centre which meant I spent my entire childhood watching the charity grow and take in and look after more casualties. When I was young, I remember having a house full of hedgehogs, birds, foxes and deer which created the most amazing childhood experience. 

The Wildlife centre is very close to all our families hearts as it was created in memory of my sister, Millie, whom passed away due to her Cystic Fibrosis before I was born. 13 years later of watching the Wildlife Centre grow as a charity, I was late diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis also, along with one other sister and one brother. 

Since I was 16, I have set myself a challenge of raising over £1000 a year for different charities. I have since raised money for the CF Trust, the Starlight Children's Foundation, The Above and Beyond Charity and I have also fundraised a World Challenge program. I have taken part in cycling from Bristol to Paris, completing the National Three Peaks Challenge, The Great South Run and volunteering in a Cambodian Orphanage. I believe Mont Blanc is going to be a worthy challenge to fundraise for the Oak and Furrows. 

Thank you so much for all your support.
