Children’s Hospice South West is urging people to aim high and taken on an overseas fundraising challenge this year.

The Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is urging people to aim high for 2015 and take on an overseas fundraising challenge.

Whether you want to scale a mountain, take on an extreme trek, or just push your boundaries further than ever before, 2015 could be the year you make yourself and CHSW proud.

Mandy Robbins, deputy chief executive at CHSW said: “Your journey in training and fundraising for your challenge will be tough, but by choosing to support CHSW you will always know that you are making a huge difference to so many children, brothers, sisters, mums and sads local to you who are facing an equally challenging journey of their own.”

Helen Witcombe, from Bath, took on a trek up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania last year and said: “The trek was hard going in places but so worthwhile.

“Having spent just over four days climbing to the summit, reaching the peak was an amazing feeling and knowing that I was helping to raise thousands for Children’s Hospice South West really spurred me on.”
