Climbing for the NHS

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit NHS Charities Together.

Hey, I'm Pete,

I have been, and going to continue to climb from my home on Easter Road, Edinburgh to the top of Arthur's Seat (an extinct volcano, Google it)

I'd like as much of the money raised as possible to go to helping the nurses and doctors on the front lines of this pandemic, who are literally putting their lives on the line helping the people that need it most.

This thing will pass, nobody can say exactly when yet.

The only thing we can all see is that the inexcusable inaction from Government has put the NHS under extreme pressure (not to mention all the doctors/nurses that left the UK after we left europe because England wanted to...but I digress)

Any money you would be willing to give would be greatly appreciated. 

I will start taking videos from the top daily, as of now I'm on day 5 so just 25 more to go.

Today, the total vertical meterage climbed is the same as the height of Ben Nevis, and by the end of this I'll have beasted it 6 times

Keep safe and positive people,

"This too shall pass."
- Ancient Persian adage.
