This July Tom will tackle the final Nuttall in his nine-year epic challenge!
Nine years ago when persuaded to join some friends on a climb of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, Tom didn’t realise this initial challenge would lead to him climbing all of the English Nuttalls. The Nuttalls are mountains more than 2000 feet in height, by the time Tom finishes his challenge he would have climbed 258 of them.
When Tom summits Scafell Pike, the last peak in his challenge and the highest mountain in England, he will have covered over 900 miles and ascended the equivalent height of around 8 Mount Everests. Along the way, he has been joined by 24 friends and family, as well as a dog!
Tom has a special reason for choosing to fundraise for Rainbow Trust as one of his two chosen charities. His nephew Joseph has been in and out of the hospital for around the last 5 years since the age of 3, receiving chemotherapy and other treatment for a brain tumour, during this time Rainbow Trust has supported the family providing practical and emotional support where ever it is needed.
