My story

[p]Charlie and Sophie have teamed up with an all female team which will be summiting 3 peaks in 3 countries in 3 days in the Alps. We are working with Child Bereavement UK, a charity supporting bereaved children and parents, celebrating their 25th anniversary of vitally important work. 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][br][/p][p]We are aiming to raise funds for Child Bereavement UK, to help them continue supporting families when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. [/p][p][br][/p][p]As mummies ourselves, it is almost incomprehensible to imagine being in a situation where we need the support of such a charity. But it also makes us realise how important it is the work that they do, and that we need to do all we can to help them support those who need it.[/p][p][br][/p][p]We would be so grateful for any donations, and any amount will help (all currencies welcome and appreciated!). Thank you so much for supporting our team in taking on this mega challenge!![/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]Why we are supporting Child Bereavement UK[/u][/b][/p][p][br][/p][p]* Every 22 minutes a parent dies leaving dependent children. Around 111 children are bereaved of a parent every day[/p][p][br][/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][br][/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.
