We’re tackling 4 of the highest mountains in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland in 48 hours.
The challenge will see us summit Ben Nevis (1,345m), Scafell Pike (978m), Snowdon (1,085m) and Slieve Donard (850m) within a 48-hour window between 10th to 13th August 2022.
I’ve worked for this organisation for nearly 18 years and have been heavily involved with the works charitable trust since I joined in 2004.
Our charity has raised well over £500,000 and donated this to well deserving children’s charities. The best part is that the money required to participate in the events is covered by the business Advanta Wealth Ltd so every penny raised is given to the children’s charities.
I’m a 45 year old man (boy) with type 2 Diabetes, a bad back, a plate, screws and bolts in my leg and a frozen shoulder.
The last 2 years have been hard for us all but I can only imagine how bad it was for any kids who were in need of help, extra support or love whilst in lockdown – So I decided I wanted to challenge myself physically and mentally in aid of raising money.
I was also inspired by the 2021 Advanta Foundation team who completed the Lands’ End to John O’Groats cycle!
If possible, please donate any amount you can but also remember EVERY PENNY raised will be going to children who need help.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and thank you if you decided to sponsor me for this huge personal challenge
