50 Peaks in 50 Weeks (Final Update)

Recap: Keith & Nicky Morris, having reached their 50th birthdays early in 2012, are climbing 50 peaks in 50 weeks to raise enough money to pay for 50 life-changing operations for people far less fortunate than themselves in rural Zambia.

After ten months of trailing up and down mountains all over England and Wales we finally have the end of our 50 Peaks in 50 Weeks challenge in sight with 47 peaks conquered including Scafell Pike and Snowdon. We have walked well over 100 miles, and climbed up more than 88,000ft of mountain, which is equivalent to climbing Mount Everest three times.

Dozens of family and friends have accompanied us for part of our epic journey and we will finish off by climbing Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales and a volcano in sunny Lanzarote to finish it all off in style.

We hope to raise around £10,000 for Mercy Flyers but to achieve this we need to raise a further £1,500 before the end of November and if we do achieve this, then Keith’s employer Archant will match fund up to £3,000. So any final contributions, which will be doubled by Archant, are more than welcome from Mercy Flyer supporters.

You can donate online at www.bmycharity.com/50peaks or send direct to Sylvia Hemmings at Mercy Flyers (2 Springfield Close, Long Stratton, Norfolk NR15 2WQ) with a note that your gift is to be allocated against our challenge.
