Jane Wake is on a bit of a mission

As some of you will know, this year I have been involved in climbing the odd mountain or two in order to raise money for charity. The charity is the Rod Kesson Benefit Fund.

Last year a very dear friend and client, Rod Kesson, tragically died. Rod was an incredible man and the sort of person who would tackle all things in a positive, go-getting, humorous manner. In doing so he made a wonderful difference, not to just a few but to thousands of people's lives. Monica, Rods wife, with the help of family and friends, has set up a trust fund in Rods name, The Rod Kesson Benefit Fund,

The fund has been set up to raise money over 2008 with the target of £20,000. Charities include; The British Heart Foundation, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and also a charity based in St Lucia in the Caribbean which raises funds to help kids further their education. St Lucia is the place where I met Rod and Monica and where at the very beginning of this year, Monica and I, conquered 'Le Petite Piton' a climb for which we set aside fears and wobbly legs in order to get to the top. This month I will tackle another challenge with Monica and also with the boxer Barry McGuigan, to climb all 15 peaks in Snowdonia in 2 days. If you would like to Sponsor me in my efforts please log on to my just giving page

Thank you for reading and to amuse yourself please do have a look at the attached picture, taken whilst on a practice run in Snowdonia – I didn't realize quite what I was sitting on... honest!
