Maple's Mountain a Month Challenge
Mission completed! On 30/12/19, on Maple & I summitted our 12th mountain (>610m) in consecutive months)in an attempt to enjoy the great outdoors and raise awareness of the fabulous work of Southampton Family Trust.
Why?Why not? I miss the mountains.The only thing better than climbing one is being on its top.It'd be irresponsible not to introduce a highly-energetic working cocker spaniel to some of the UK's most beautiful uplandsSouthampton Family Trust is a local charity which supports disadvantaged families. The charity relies heavily on volunteers so take a look at their website. Is this for you? Grant funding finances much of their work but each year funds have to be raised to cover office/staff costs to enable the valuable work to continue. Small donations go a very long way in this business....
