The Peaky Climbers
About the group
What started out as a personal goal for us, turned into an opportunity to raise money for a great cause. This challenge is nothing compared to what many families in Northern Ireland face as a result of cancer.

Fundraising for Cancer Fund for Children
Extract from charity's website
Cancer treatment is frightening, challenging, and isolating and can devastate families emotionally, physically, and financially.
For a diagnosed child, months of gruelling treatment and its side effects can impact their mental health, their education, and their friendships. This is also an extremely worrying time for siblings who can feel like the forgotten child as their parents focus their attention on their sick sibling.
For many parents struggling to care for a child with cancer, whilst working and maintaining a family routine, a childhood cancer diagnosis can place an enormous strain on their relationships and their finances. Children who are struggling to cope with their parent’s cancer diagnosis life becomes full of fear and uncertainty, whilst their parents worry about how to talk to their children about cancer.
At Cancer Fund for Children, we understand the devastating impact a cancer diagnosis and its treatment have on the whole family, and that beyond the essential medical care, there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt.
