Story

On 18 August 2022, we once again followed Keta's Journey and completed the climb of 47 Peaks in Snowdonia in 5 days - one for each year of Keta's life. We climbed in aggregate for 52hrs, covering 115km and an ascent of over 28,000ft, the equivalent of climbing Everest from sea level!

(PS huge thanks to Tom from Walk Snowdonia for guiding and motivating https://www.walksnowdonia.co.uk/)

Keta died on 27 January 2019 from Motor Neurone Disease. She was more than ready to go and retained her humour to the end. She is a legend, adored by us all.

Since being diagnosed in 2014, our family and friends have been determined that Keta's courageous and smiling 5 year fight against this awful disease helps others impacted in the same way. We therefore participate regularly in events to raise money for MND research (still to find the cause, let alone a cure) and to support other families experiencing the same.

We would be extremely grateful for any donations.

Many thanks. 

Hebe, Violet & Kevin (magnificently supported by Neil & Matt)
