Raising a mountain of cash!

Reaching the summit!

A huge congratulations to Alexander (P5) and his sister, Eloise (P3) who took on the mammoth challenge of climbing Ben Nevis on Saturday 22 June in support of the We are all George Heriot campaign.

Alexander and Eloise were not discouraged when their original climb date was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions a few weeks ago and were excited to take on the challenge of climbing 4,413ft to the summit of Ben Nevis with their parents.

It was a long day for the family starting at 7.30am and although visibility was poor and gloves were freezing to hands, through sheer grit and determination they reached the summit by 17:00.

After setting themselves a fundraising target of £2000 for this climbing challenge, we are delighted to announce that Alexander and Eloise raised a remarkable £4095 towards the We are all George Heriot campaign.

If you would like to donate to Alexander and Eloise's amazing fundraising efforts and support the We are all George Heriot campaign, donations can be made via their TotalGiving page below:

Congratulations Alexander & Eloise, what a tremendous achievement!
