#BringItOn4Ben Challenge: Can you spare a pound and fund vital support?

0

Autotechnician’s Nathan Wise will take on the National 3 Peaks Challenge in September to raise money for three special charities, and we’d be over the moon if you could spare just a pound to help fund the crucial support Nathan’s chosen charities provide.

Our Digital Brand Manager Nathan Wise has accepted the call from automotive charity to #BringItOn4Ben and will attempt to climb the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – within 24 hours, on September 28. 

“On behalf of Autotechnician Magazine I am going to embark on the ‘National Three Peaks
Challenge’, to raise money for Ben, Papyrus and the Kenward Trust. I’ll be attempting this challenge in memory of Mick ‘Mildred’ Rees – a loving son and brother, great friend and talented mechanic, 30.01.1989 – 06.05.2018. 

“I’ve spent a week trekking in Switzerland in the past and I spent 4-5 years in the RAF Cadets, so I have some experience of things like this – jut nothing for 24 hours solid. I’m pretty fit and active in general, but I plan on taking the family to Wales/ Snowdon over the summer so I can do some test runs. I’ll also be doing what I can in the gym. 

“I set my target at £2,000, which I think is achievable. If just 25% of our FB followers donated just £1, I’m there.” 

Nathan is attempting the trek in memory of his friend Mick Rees. Mick’s mother describes the important work undertaken by the Papyrus and the Kenward Trust:

“To lose someone you love is always devastating and heart breaking, but to lose someone so young to suicide somehow adds to the state of grief. To know your loved one chose to end their life is soul destroying. Whether you are their mother, as in my case, a sibling, family member or a friend, always there is the question – could I have prevented it? Papyrus is a charity that focuses on preventing suicide amongst our young people with a view to offering help, advice and support, and ultimately save lives. In addition to Papyrus, we have chosen another charity called Kenward Trust, which is a rehabilitation centre offering much needed help and support for both alcohol and drug addiction. A problem that seems to be increasing throughout today’s society and in many cases often leads to suicide. Both charities do outstanding work and offer help and support to create better futures. We have chosen them both in honour of Michael Rees who gave up on life 6th May 2018.”
