My story

[p]In September I'll be climbing almost 5,000 meters to the top of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe. It's a 6 day expedition featuring various acclimatisation ascents using crampons, ropes and ice axes. According to my guide the effort required on summit day far exceeds that of running a marathon....[/p][p]I realise I've asked a lot from family, friends and colleagues over the past few years for a range of charitable endeavours, but I'm going to humbly ask again for whatever you can spare. Every pound raised will keep my feet moving up that mountain and go to a very worthwhile cause![/p][p]I have chosen to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH). Every day, 619 children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential.[/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read my page. Please donate to this fantastic cause! I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
