FinCoops Mont Blanc challenge's fundraising

Anthony Dye, michael armstrong,

My page:

Welcome to the Page of the FinCoops Mont Blanc Challenge team. And looking to raise as much money as possible for the Finlay Cooper Fund which helps both organisations and single cases for the care and treatment of sick children. 

In total there are 4, Tony Dye, Dave Rowlands, Michael Armstrong and Jon Hobson who are looking to summit the mountain at 4810 meters at altitude starting on the 13th June.  This is first time that some of the team have ever done anything like this.  And though each of us has our own personal reasons for doing the Mont Blanc and along with the dangers and risks it poses but we have one common goal, and that is to raise as much funds as possible to help disadvantaged children and to give them something in life they may not have….  For every pound we raise for the climb. BP will match pound for pound up to the value of £3500.  

The fund is a non-profit organisation which is assisted by volunteers to make it successful.  The Fund was originally created by Colin and Julie Cooper who sadly lost their Son Finlay, and they both believed that something positive could arise from such a tragedy. So in 2006, the Fund was created and started to raise money in earnest with the help of a lot of generous people.  Since the start £350.000 has been raised and the use of the funds has been given in donations to a large number of children’s causes including hospices, a diabetes trust and also a Cancer Ward.  More Info about the website can be found here.

With the help of people like you, they hope to help children’s causes for many years to come, in Finlay’s name!  Can you please help?

Thanks for visiting our page :)
