On Friday 17th November, Nathan Hobson and Chris Huggett climbed 8849 meters, the equivalent of reaching the summit of Mount Everest, to raise vital funds for Mental Health Resource.

Nathan and Chrism both from Crowborough, completed this gruelling challenge in 4 hours and 12 minutes and climbed a total of 29,435 steps using the step machines at Isenhurst Gym in Crowborough.

Nathan, 48, was inspired to take on the challenge after losing a close friend to death by suicide in January 2022. He says:

Chris and I wanted to raise funds for this local charity because mental health is something that really does affect everyone, some more than others. We wanted to raise awareness of this great local charity who offer free services for anyone who is struggling.”

Thank you so much to Nathan, Chris and everyone who donated on their fundraising page.
