Stephen Brown, senior partner at Dodds Brown LLP, thanks everyone who supported him with donations during his gruelling 11 day Tour de Mont Blanc Alpine walk.
In total he raised £2,430 for the Alzheimer’s Society and for Syrian Refugees through UNICEF.
“The generosity and support of everyone who donated really kept me going throughout the walk and the recovery period afterwards. I would like to sincerely thank each one of them,” said Stephen.
Tackling the Tour de Mont Blanc was a long held ambition of Stephen who is a keen walker, but he found the conditions hard going. “It was 11 days difficult walking in some very challenging weather conditions, made easier by the fact that I was raising money for good causes,” continued Stephen.
The Tour de Mont Blanc is a 120 mile circumnavigation of the Alps’ highest peak, with more than 35,000 feet of ascent and descent. Staying in mountain refuges, walkers must carry all their kit with them for the entire hike.
The money will be handed over to the charities shortly, but there is still a chance to donate. Donations can be made to support Stephen by visiting his JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/Stephen-Brown38, or via text by texting: MTBC55 £10 to 70070.
