The journey so far;

29 May 2023 he completed the 12 mountain Everest challenge with the hike up Ben Nevis.

4 August 2023 he and his friend Ollie completed the National three peaks challenge in 45hours and 50mins. 

I am 6 years old and at school we learnt about Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay which has inspired me to want to be the youngest person to climb Mount Everest, but I need to practice first!

My Daddy and I came up with a plan to climb the equivalent of Mount Everest (8,849m) across 12 UK mountains. This was a huge challenge for me so we thought it would be a great way to raise money to help support children and their families when they are facing much harder challenges in their lives.  

I have just started out on my Everest journey, but have completed my first fundraising challenge with these 12 mountains, you can follow my progress on my Facebook page - Oscar's Everest Walk for Derian House Children's Hospice (facebook.com)....
