Story

At a colossal 5,895m, Mt. Kilimanjaro is one of the largest volcanoes to ever break through the Earth’s crust. In September 2024, we'll take on the challenge to clamber above the sea of clouds to its summit. This is one of the toughest but most exhilarating adventures we'll ever embark on, and for me personally, is a terrifying but thrilling challenge!

Kelly's Heroes was formed in 2019 after the devastating loss of Kelly Hewitt who was taken from us way too young following her struggles with Mental Health. Kelly's Mum, Dad and Sister set the charity up to help other struggling with their mental health and for those who have been bereaved by suicide. It's a charity I've frequently encountered during my career in the Prison Service, Youth Offending, and Child Protection, where I've intensively supported adults, young people and children to improve their Mental Health and Wellbeing.

Unless you are affected or know someone struggling with Mental Health it’s difficult to understand. There is often still a stigma associated with it, leaving many to suffer in silence, our aim is to raise awareness and help to prevent suicide.

We're aiming to raise £50,000 through this challenge to help the charity continue their vital work, and I really want to be a part of supporting it!
