My story

[p]Dear Friends,[/p][p]On October 2019, I will be joining an all-female team who will be summiting 3 peaks in 3 countries in 3 days in the Alps. Over the 3 days we will be climbing peaks in Italy, France and Switzerland, reaching altitudes over twice as high as Ben Nevis. [/p][p]On each day of our challenge we will summit a different peak in a new country, including; Testa Della Tronche, Italy (2,581m), Bel Oiseau, Switzerland (2,628m) and Aiguilette de Posettes, France (2,201). Over the three days we will be reaching combined altitudes of 7,410 meters (24,311 feet).[/p][p]This charity is particularly close to our family. When we lost our baby boy, 6 days after he was born, Child Bereavement UK were an incredible support to us a, not just in terms of processing and coping with the loss, but also with very helpful advice on how to explain everything to our eldest son. [/p][p]Please help me support this incredible charity, all donations are gratefully received. Thank you, Jo x[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]More on Child Bereavement UK[/b][/p][p]This year marks 25 years of Child Bereavement UK’s supporting families and educating professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.[/p][p]• Every 22 minutes, a parent dies leaving dependent children. Around 111 children are bereaved of a parent every day.[/p][p]• Around 28 babies, children and young people under the age of 25 die each day in the UK – over 10,000 each year. [/p][p]• Child Bereavement UK’s vision is for all families to have the support they need to rebuild their lives, when a child grieves or when a child dies, and we want to help them to achieve this through our team Alpine Challenge.[/p][p][br][/p]
