Climbing Mont Blanc and raising £1 for each of its 4807 metres in height!

Andrew Wallace works for Leathwaite who have recently chosen Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research as a charity partner.

Here is Andrew's story: "I was delighted when we opted to support LLR this year.  My Dad survived lymphoma twice and is still around today to tell his story, but I did lose my my brother-in-law Max 10 years ago to cancer and would like to dedicate this climb to both those who we must never forget and those who have been fortunate to beat it.  My goal is to raise £4807, which is the height of Mont Blanc in meters, so every pound will be for every meter climbed.  The climb is very weather dependent and Mont Blanc is as temperamental as all the highest mountains in the world on that front, so fingers crossed it’s a balmy day and I can share a decent photo from the top!  Here’s a link if you’d like to sponsor me:

From everyone at LLR, the best of luck and thank you for fundraising for us and we look forward to hearing all about your successful climb!

I've skied down Mont Blanc - not sure I could climb up it though! Good luck Andrew!
