A father and daughter team are preparing to scale Mont Blanc to raise funds for World Land Trust (WLT) in June. On the border between France and Italy, Mont Blanc is the highest peak in the Alps.
Jim Gabbitas chose to climb Mont Blanc because he was looking for an adventure. His daughter Charlotte has agreed to share the challenge. She said: “I fooled myself into thinking I am much fitter than I actually am. This lack of fitness is becoming more of a concern as the trip gets closer, so I’m hoping the thought of not letting a charity down will help to spur me on!”
Team Gabbitas are hoping to raise £1,000 for WLT. “We’re climbing Mont Blanc for World Land Trust because they do amazing things to help save the planet,” they said.
Charlotte and Jim will be climbing Mont Blanc on 20 June 2015. You can support their effort by making a donation to their fundraising page »
