UPDATED 04-06-2021: BREAKING NEWS: HENRY AND BRETT GOT TO THE TOP OF BEN NEVIS!
Brett sent to us yesterday night this moving message:
Just finished Ben Nevis, here are some pics.
We've hit £1000, which is amazing.
Henry and Brett are climbing the 3 tallest peaks in the UK over 5 days, starting with Snowdon before travelling onto Scafell Pike and finishing with Ben Nevis, climbing over 11,000 feet in the process..
Both climbers were dear friends of Gavin Hepburn, who passed away from MDS 5 years ago.
For those of you who did not know Gavin, follow this link to read Gavin and his family story.
We thank Henry and Brett profusely for remembering Gavin this way and for never stopping to raise awareness and funds for MDS.
Good luck to both!
Henry and I are climbing the 3 tallest peaks in the UK over 5 days, starting with Snowdon before travelling onto Scafell Pike and finishing with Ben Nevis, climbing over 11,000 feet in the process.
We've been training by traipsing up and down the largest hills in Surrey and Sussex over the last year (when Covid restrictions have allowed us) which has given us plenty of time to discuss which charity we would like to support.
In truth it took us only minutes to decide we wanted to support the MDS UK patient support group. A little over 5 years ago we lost our dear friend Gavin Hepburn to MDS, a tragic loss that impacted us both.
Here are some pics from Scarfell Pike, top middle. Fundraising is going really well, and lots of people are asking us about the charity!
I'll mail you again with (hopefully!) some pics from Ben Nevis!!
A BIG THANK YOU to Henry and Brett for putting such brilliant efforts to raise funds and awareness of MDS.
Today, more than ever, we need generous people like them, to help us assist future MDS patients and their families.
