Event details

Summit of Mount Everest

On the 16th May 2017, I Summitted Mount Everest from the North Face with my Sherpa Purba, words are not enough to describe the satisfaction of achieving my life time goal, along the way raising this money for my chosen charities. Standing on top of the world, looking around is by far the best feeling ever, it's a feeling that will remain with me forever, I'm an Everest Summiter, thats super cool.

I do have frostbite on my right big toe, it's healing well and I will make a full recovery, but it does hurt, a small price to pay for my summit.

Thank you to all those who given towards our charities, when all the money's in I hope to have raised over £40,000 which is huge!
