Charity fundraiser in aid of the Mental Health Foundation
The SMHRN team recently completed a charity stair climb in aid of the Mental Health Foundation (Scotland). This was an incredible success. The team managed to climb from the very bottom of the Mariana Trench (the deepest part of the world's oceans) to the top of Mount Everest (world's highest mountain). Over 24 hours during 21st to 22nd March, a staggering 19,881m was climbed by the team; this is the equivalent of 740 asents/descents or 130,240 steps of the Kennedy Tower where the event was held. We have raised over £1500 for the Mental Health Foundation and would like to thank everyone who has supported us. Donations can still be made on our dedicated JustGiving page.
