"I will be doing the hike in hope to try and raise lots of pennies for Macmillan, a fantastic charity who help to provide support for those facing cancer and ultimately strive to help make sure no one faces it alone. Macmillan not only supply an invaluable source of support for individuals, but also recognise that cancer affects more than just the patients, and additionally aim to help families, carers and communities by doing such things as funding nurses, other specialist health care professionals and building cancer care centres."
"Having really sadly lost my Nan to Ovarian cancer, my family know first hand that what Macmillan provide is certainly worth celebrating, so please donate any amount you can. As an avid fell walker in the Lake district Nan also knew a trick or two of how to tackle a mountain, so I'm really hoping this has rubbed off on me to and helps me make it to the top! One thing is for sure...I will be packing enough Kendal mint cake to feed an army!"

"I hope this has informed you a little about the benefit of doing the hike, and inspired you to part with some pennies. I look forward to sharing some photos from the top (and hopefully the bottom if I make it down again!) "
