6 Years running

In 2014 I self funded an attempt to achieve a life's dream of stepping foot on to the highest point on Earth. At the end of March I left my hometown of Hartlepool in the UK and travelled to Nepal, where I then trekked for 19 days to reach Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain. I was just hours away from the mountain and poised to begin the climb when a huge ice avalance came crashing down directly on to the climbing route. Unfortunately 16 sherpas were tragically killed in what became the worst and most fatal accident in the history of Everest climbing. This avalance ended all climbing on the mountain for 2014. 

I have vowed to return and give the climb one last shot but that all depends on whether I am able to get the funds together to pay the expedition fees for the 2nd year running.

There are just 3 months to go now till departure from the UK for possibly one last chance to climb on Everest. After I travelled out to Everest in April 2014 after several years of tireless fundraising I never stepped foot on the mountain due to the deadliest single incident in the mountain's history on April 18th.

Over the next 10 weeks I need to raise around £10,000 to take my place back on the team heading out to Nepal.

Two years ago I had just 90 followers on this page and no way of raising the funds to reach the mountain. Today I have over 10,700 likes, a failed attempt under my belt and a succesful brand of Everest themed gear to hopefully give me one more chance.

No matter whether I succeed or fail I am proud of what I have achieved and how far I have come towards the achievement of a 20 year plus dream.

Never ever give in people, ever. I may indeed not be there myself yet but I am inching closer day by day.
