The Challenge

Over the space of 1 week in September, 8 very brave and crazy individuals, will take on the challenge of an endurance climb to the top of Mont Blanc. At 4,810 meters, Mont Blanc is the tallest peak in the Alps. Our brave team will spend 3 days altitude training and 4 nights in mountain huts as they brave treacherous terrain and conditions to reach the summit.

The 8 mad men attempting this are:

  • Oli Finn
  • Mark Tilley
  • Paul Sawyer
  • Benji Sargison
  • Ben Lander
  • Magid El-Amin
  • Phil Parker
  • Jules Adams
  • Martin Garthwaite

As we get closer we will update you with more news and fundraisers that you can get involved in and help the guys get to their goal of £30K raised.

The Fundraiser

No matter how hard the challenge is that the boys are undertaking, we are under no illusion that the pain and difficulty of this challenge is temporary. We are looking to raise money for families that go through pain and hardship everyday and need the support of Forever Colours on so many levels. £30k will pay for two carers to have five children on their case loads for a year. The families that the hospice support through a number of different services have life limiting or life threatening conditions as well as families who have children who suffer from PMLD (Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties).  Through family activity days, respite at the family home, play therapy, sibling support, advocacy, there are lots of ways Forever Colours support the families.  However, the charity rely solely on funds raised through public and corporate donations.  Raising this money is vital for the support of these families. If you would like to support and help raise funds, then please follow the link below. Thank you for your support. And good luck to the boys climbing Mont Blanc!
