WELCOME!

Hey everyone, thank you very much for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you, your friends, families, colleagues and even that random guy who looked at you in the street earlier today can sponsor me and help me towards my ultimate goal - raising enough money to get me to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro! Donations will be quickly processed and passed on to my chosen charity, "Meningitis Research Foundation." Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you in advance for any donations. Just remember, any amount you can give, no matter how small, all builds up and adds towards the final target. Give as much or as little as you can - just think about the end achievement.

 THANK YOU
