These may actually be our last words, as time tomorrow we’ll be starting our ascent of Ben Nevis, the first of the THREE PEAKS. Having thrown ourselves into some intensive training over the past few weeks, we were all quietly confident about the upcoming challenge…. That was until the latest weather forecast was brought to our attention which forecasts heavy rain, winds of 70km/h, AND a wind chill of -5… and that’s just the first summit!
It’s fair to say we’re all now completely terrified, but committed to raising money for three fantastic charities – Bloodwise, Neuroblastoma and Mind.
It’s the last of these three charities, Mind, that I’ll be specifically looking into.
Mind is a charity that has received a lot of coverage recently - for very good reason. For 70 years, Mind has been committed to ensuring that everyone experiencing a mental health problem can access the support they need and is treated with the respect they deserve. It has the ambition of ensuring that nobody has to face a mental health problem alone, and given that every year one in four of us will experience a mental health problem, to achieve their ambition they really need our help.
So please do donate, no matter how big or small, at our fundraising page here:
