Climb Your Mountain

We provide walks and mountain experiences to benefit children with disabilities

Charity Registration No. 1126004



Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.


Climb Your Mountain (CYM) is a charity organisation that helps people to climb their own personal mountains which they come across in their lives. CYM promotes physical and mental wellbeing focusing on the positive impact of physical exercise like walking, running, hiking, fitness, group activities and also some educational courses relating to mental and physical wellbeing.


I started walking with the group because I wanted to do more exercise. On a day to day basis I work in a bakery with people who have learning disabilities and I wanted to be fit for the job. I like walking, but always had trouble finding people to come with me.


I met Jane a while ago and she was talking about her achievements through climbing Kilimanjaro with CYM. The first year I could not imagine myself focusing on this, however the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do it.  

I did a few trips with the CYM group, where I met ordinary people just like me who’ve already been or they were going to climb Kilimanjaro.

So I decided on the day when I came down from Snowdon, which was a very cold and windy day, to talk to someone who is planning on going in February 2011. Here I am now asking you to help me and my charity to achieve this goal so I can climb this beautiful mountain in November 2011.


I always had very low self esteem, and only at the age of 35 I was brave enough to even swim. Another example would be getting back into driving after a 30 year gap and also learning to ski at the age of 54.


Slowly I get more and more confidence in myself that gives me the strength to fly like a butterfly higher and higher. I got 4 birthday presents this year which related to butterflies, which I took as a clear sign.


Thank you for reading my life story and I hope you can support my charity that supports me to achieve this fantastic goal.
