In September, I'm taking on a new challenge: completing the National Three Peaks in less than 24 hours. This will be quite demanding as I haven't engaged in such an activity like this since my early 20s.
I'm supporting Martin House because they are an invaluable charity to so many families, including myself and my family. As a lot of you already know a few years ago my wife and I lost our son just two days after his birth. Our lives and world as we knew them were ripped from under us and we were suddenly bereaved parents not knowing what to do. We can't thank Martin House enough for the support, guidance and courage they gave us to navigate our grief in those first few days after losing him, and how they continued to do so in the months that followed.
Now, Martin House has become like an extended family to us, as it has for many other families. That's why it's so important to contribute whatever we can to this remarkable charity.
Thank you for any sponsorship you can offer, and please wish me luck on this journey!
The National Three Peaks Challenge is a thrilling event where participants endeavor to conquer the highest mountains of England, Scotland, and Wales within a 24-hour timeframe. Climbers ascend each peak in sequence and are transported to the foot of each mountain accordingly.
The three peaks are:
• Ben Nevis 4413ft
• Scafell Pike 3209 ft
• Snowdon 3560 ft
The estimated overall walking distance covers approximately 42 kilometers, involving a total ascent of 9,800 meters.
Martin House supports children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, across West, North and East Yorkshire. Our vision is that every child and young person has access to palliative care when and where they need it.
