My story

[p]This year I have decided to walk the height of Everest with my guide dog Jimbo! As with the majority of the country, we have been in hibernation quite a few months, which hasn’t been great for the belly… now that lockdown is coming to an end, I have decided to lose a few pounds, but also raise a few whilst I’m at it![/p][p]Jimbo will be leading me up Marston hill (in Priors Marston) 197 times over the next few months, until I have reached the height of Mount Everest by my 78th birthday in August. The money we raise will be split between 3 worthy charities: European Guide Dog Federation, Warwickshire Vision Support and Motor Neurone Disease Association, which has killed so many people close to me, including my son Simon.[/p][p]Before he died, Simon made himself a bucket list – at the top was to raise an ambitious £1 million for Motor Neurone, to hopefully one day, help find a cure. Simon is now over halfway to his target…[/p][p]To help reach his goal, I will be topping it up with a portion of the money raised from this challenge![/p][p]Many thanks in advance, David and Jimbo [/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]UPDATES[/u][/b][/p][p][b]7 august 2021[/b][/p][p]David and Jimbo had a lovely end to their Everest challenge on Sunday, about 80 people joined them throughout the event and they are fast approaching their £10,000 target! [/p][p][b]6 August 2021[/b][/p][p]Three hikes left to go, itv are filming us today and we should be on the news tonight. Don’t miss it![/p][p][b]3 August 2021[/b][/p][p]We survived storm Evert last week and now have 6 climbs to go to the finish on Sunday! [/p][p][b]29 July 2021[/b][/p][p]Just 10 days to go to reach the height of Everest! Hoping everyone will join us for a celebration at the top on the 8th August, just after midday - We will have food available, with some music and refreshments. We have now climbed 28,055ft and the equivalent of 6 marathons![/p][p][b]16th July 2021[/b][/p][p]With 28 days to go, we have climbed 25,477ft, and walked the equivalent of 5 and 1/2 full marathons! The heat wave is not helping...[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]17th June 2021[/b][/p][p]After a nice break at Ascot, David and Jim are back climbing the Everest challenge. By the end of today Jimbo and I will have reached 6000m, which will leave base camp far behind![/p][p][b]16th June 2021[/b][/p][p]We have now reached the height of Kilimanjaro at 5,895 m above sea level! David is looking forward to a bit of a rest, as he going away for a few days to attend Ascot Races, a yearly tradition. Keep an eye out for him and Jimbo on the TV![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]10th June 2021[/b][/p][p]101 days completed so far and David and Jimbo reached the height of Everest base camp yesterday at 5,364 mtrs above sea level and walked a distance of 169 km. Both David and Jimbo have lost 1kg over the last few weeks, and with 96 days left to go hopefully this will have a positive effect on both the scales and the target! [/p][p]Thank you all for your continued support.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]4th May 2021[/b][/p][p]65 days on, Jimbo and David have made 78 trips, ascended 11,828ft, higher than Aneto - the highest peak in the Pyrenees. They have walked 110 km, so just a few more trips to achieve 3 full marathons! With nearly £3,000 raised they have just 95 days to hit their target. Thank you to all who have supported them - David's knees are still holding out, so far so good![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]11th April 2021[/b][/p][p]43 days on - Jimbo and David have ascended 8340ft, more the height of Ben Nevis. They have also covered the length of nearly 2 marathons - 77 km! Just 118 days left to go...[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
