About

Before starting my third year at Eton College, I wanted to do something for a good cause during my long summer holidays. 

Horatio's Garden was set up following the sad death of a fellow Etonian. Horatio Chapple planned to study medicine having really enjoyed volunteering at Salisbury Spinal Centre in his school holidays. It was his patient research that established the need for a beautiful garden to be created.

Tragically, Horatio did not live to see the garden grow. At the age of 17, while on an expedition to Svalbard, he was killed by a polar bear. He acted with unfaltering courage and lost his life. 

The charity, Horatio's Garden, creates and cares for beautiful and accessible gardens within NHS Spinal Injury centres all over the UK. The next garden, due to open later this year, is at Stoke Mandeville Hospital which is where I was born.

 

Event details

Walking the West Highland Way and Ben Nevis

I will be going on a week long trip to Scotland where I will walk the West Highland Way and climb Ben Nevis at the end of the walk.

In total I expect to walk roughly 155 kilometres and climb 1.5 kilometres. 

Your generous support would be much appreciated.
