We raise funds to aid research into curing cancer.


I am running and playing the accordion as a way of raising the spirit of those who climb and are tired so that they can enjoy even more the experience and community of those who seek peace, joy or solace on the mountains.

I am raising funds for Climbers Against Cancer and Mountain Rescue. My dad died with this horrible illness and we all know someone who has gone too soon because of Cancer. We can defeat cancer together and helping the researchers who lead in this field.

Last December I raised and sent a bit more than £1000 during the "Highest Christmas Carols with Accordion" project.

During September 2023 I run the Dragon's Back Race and completed the hatchling course (6 days, 200k, 10000m, 52 hours) carryng my accordion across Wales from Conwy Castle to Cardiff Castle and playing for the runners and bystanders on the hills and at camp.

I am committed to

#Carmineaccordionround #accordiononthemountains #accordionman project which will involve many trail/mountain races or challenges where you will find me (in person - if you come along - or through social media) on high peaks in any weather spreading joy and building community.

If you would like to donate and share a desire to support these charities, THANK YOU!

If you would like to share my story, please, I will be in debt to you. THANK YOU!
