Vicky's (2nd) attempt to summit Kili
Alice's Mum <3
I'm climbing Kilimanjaro to carry out my daughter's wish to summit Kili and scatter her ashes at the top. Alice will be my inspiration to make it to the top along with her motto #OneLifeLiveIt <3
Alice founded her charity, Alice's Escapes, before she sadly passed away earlier this year. The charity provides family holidays in the Lake District for terminally and seriously ill children. We know first hand how precious a break is - time away, just you and your loved ones, creating special memories.
Alice has left me with the perfect training partner - her beloved Labrador, Mabel. Together, we walk around 5 miles a day and at weekends we can be found on the Lake District mountain tops. But while I need to be physically fit to take on this challenge, I believe a large percentage is being mentally fit too. For that, I have a small laminated photo book of Alice's five-year fight - a quick glance at my amazing girl, is enough to boost my energy ten-fold. Together we'll make it <3
