Hello all,
 
I have signed up for an event named "Seven Highs and a Horseshoe" and request your support in raising funds for our chosen charity, The Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance. The event is a 2 day team challenge taking place in Snowdonia, Wales on the 14th and 15th May 2011. Our brief itinerary is:
 
Day 1 - 23km hike:
The Carneddau - 3 peaks over 3000 ft followed by
The Glyders - 3 more peaks over 3000ft
 
Day 2 - 11km hike:
Mt Snowdon followed by
The Snowdon Horseshoe
 
Please help me and the lifesaving work of Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance by donating - www.justgiving.com/sevenhighs 
 
Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance 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.
 
Many thanks for your support, 
 
Nick
