Firstly thanks for taking the time to read this.
Me and my sister Jenny are raising money for charity which we will be splitting equally between Bristol Animal Rescue Centre (A.R.C) and Kidney Care UK.
We are going to be hiking up the 3 biggest peaks in the UK between June & August.
We plan on doing them providing nothing changes with covid restrictions and obviously as long as it is safe weather wise on these dates:
Snowdon (Wales), which is 1085m, on June 7th or 8th, Scafell Pike (England), which is 978m, on July 9th or 10th, and finally Ben Nevis (Scotland), which is 1345m, on August 9th or 10th.
A bit more about the charities:
Bristol A.R.C has been around for 130 years in Bristol and has helped over a million of animals in that time and current helps 14,000 every year. I personally have rehomed a cat from them, Nemo (the ginger one), and have been thinking of ways to help fundraise for them.
They rely solely on donations so any donation can help them, for example £2 is enough for 8 sachets of kitten food.
Kidney Care UK provides support to kidney patients providing practical, financial and emotional support for kidney patients and their families and campaigning to improve care services across the UK as well as helping fund research to improve patient care.
We have picked Kidney Care UK because our older sister Laura was diagnosed with a kidney disease a few years ago which has caused her kidneys to fail and they now only work at about 3% of the level of healthy kidneys. She has to have dialysis 3 times a week for approx. 4 hours each time. They have helped her a lot already and we are sure they will continue to in the future.
Obviously with everything that has happened in the last year all charities have suffered a massive drop in donations so anything that can be done to help can only be a good. Any donation big or small, even a couple quid will help, will be massively appreciated and more importantly will help some really deserving charities.
