About the group

Very small group of two individuals myself Dean Hopkins and Samuel Jones, and Tom Seymour our good friend and designated driver. Both of us have enjoyed scrambling and fell running for about a year. Decided to do something that we would remember for a long time in the summer break away from the busy lifestyle of University. Unfortunately we did start with 5 potential candidates to physically endure the challenge but after the first two months training they dropped out. We have been fundraising for Help for Heroes and after the final summit ascent there will be time for celebration for Dean's 20th birthday.

Fundraising for Help for Heroes

Help for heroes are a well known charity fundamentally aiding wounded armed service men and women. I come from a long serving military family and had the pleasure of meeting individuals who's lives have been changed by this charity. It means a lot to our group, our friends and our families, some of whom have relations actively serving today.
