Kazzoo at the top
On Sunday, 5th September, Chris and 19 others walked to the top of Scafell Pike in the Lake District! Scafell Pike stands at 978 metres and is England’s highest mountain and believe me, it was not easy! It took us around 6hrs to get to the top and back to the bar at the bottom!
We did this to raise funds for an amazing charity, Menphys. Menphys is a local charity that provides a range of specialist services to support children and young adults with additional needs and disabilities and their families. It has been supporting families across Leicester and Leicestershire for 50 years, striving to give young people equal choices, equal opportunities to allow them to live ordinary lives.
We were joined on the walk by Ian Caldwell, CEO of Menphys and Liam Deacy, their Head of Fundraising and Marketing, along with other business owners and friends. We have been blown away by the amount raised, which is currently standing at over £3,500 and people are still donating. I think the fancy dress costumes worn by some of the team helped to boost the donations at one point. How many pink flamingos, eagles and rabbits do you tend to see on a mountain?
A huge thank you to everyone that took part in this event. Chris is still on a high and is already plotting and planning his next charity venture. Watch this space!
