Old man of coniston 27th of February
On the 27th of February, Joe’s Giants joined forces once again with Ampcamp Kids and Limb-it-Less charity for a fundraising mountain climbing adventure up to the summit of the Old Man of Coniston.
Ampcamp Kids primary aim is to send Amputee children on a week long getaway within a Tenerife retreat surround by other amputee children and amputee families.
During their week away the retreat will provide fun and entertainment from Whale Watching to visiting water parks, karaoke nights to afternoons spent making arts and crafts from Beach Finds. Within the week they like to take the parents out and away from the children for a golf day or a spa day, giving parents a well deserved break from parenting and the chance to talk and open up about anything they want to with the Limb-it-Less Team. There is on site chefs to provide the families with a refreshing break to the norm with their diets, the team is also hand to offer guides on nutritional foods and dinners.
This also isn’t the first time we have met Ampcamp, as we have attended and lead previous walks in the past with themselves to help raise funds, and awareness, to the mission that Ben Lovell has tasked his life priority to be. We’ve taken the team to the top of Scafell, and to the summit of Scafell Pike.
The sheer discipline, dedication, and determination, could not be matched. It’s been an absolute pleasure to lead the humans who share steps with us throughout each and every adventure to date.
An amazing day, and an absolutely brilliant end to the month, supporting, and leading, the wonderful Ampcamp family, and those who joined, through the achievement of The Old Man of Coniston.
Thank you to everyone who shared the day with us, it’s been more than an honor to share stories and knowledge of life, and of the fells that surround us. And thank you to Ampcamp for allowing us to lead your followers and the amputees who we had the pleasure of sharing the day with. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
