About the group
We feel that this will be a personal challenge to ourselves as training is required many months in advance of the climbs/walks. We have 13 employees taking on this challenge.

Fundraising for three charities
We have decided to do this challenge to raise money for 3 charities:
Little Hearts Matter (Reg charity number 1123290) – Based in Birmingham this charity offers support and information and raises awareness of those affected when a child has only half a heart due to various conditions.
Website of Little Hearts Matter.
Midlands Air Ambulance (Reg charity number 1143118) – This charity is responsible for funding and operating three Air Ambulances serving the communities of Gloucestershire, Herts, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. Since 1991 the charity has responded to more than 34,000 missions. We have decided to sponsor this charity as it has no government or National lottery funding but need £6 million each year to keep its 3 Air ambulances operational.

They offer assistance to people in a number of ways including a National network of branches, accredited volunteers, regular regional conferences, Freephone and email help lines and also respite care for families.
