As some of you know, my Everest and Denali climbs were funded privately by a very generous company who wanted no promotion bar me raising as much awareness and as many funds for children's mental health charity Place2Be and I did just that.

Since September 2014 we, yes a HUGE 'WE', have raised over £25,000 for Place2Be as well as raising awareness for children's mental health and mental health in general.

With 5 of the 7 summits completed, namely Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, Mt Elbrus, Denali and Everest I 'just' have Carstensz Pyramid and Mt Vinson to complete. Place2Be celebrates their 25th anniversary in 2019 and I aim to complete the last 2 of the 7 by the end of 2019, maximising publicity for all concerned.

I am now looking to share the love and spread the cost so I am seeking support from a wider net. I have now set up both a business and personal crowdfunding page to harness good will and help me to complete this bonkers goal to be the 10th British woman to have stood on top of all 7 summits and more importantly to take Place2Be with me too.

The target? ‘Just’ £50k to fund both Carstensz Pyramid and Mt Vinson and complete them by the end of 2019. How? In the main by giving talks, presentations and delivering workshops to schools, businesses and groups. Please head to my Public Speaking page to find out more.
