Rob Dennis is planning an ascent of the highest peak in North Africa in order to raise funds for Help for Heroes, one of the leading charities helping soldiers today (and one of Andy McNab’s favorite charities as well, for good reason). Let’s hear it in Robert Dennis’ own words:
Mount-Toubkal-Rob-Dennis“My name is Robert Dennis. I am 24 years old. My friend Kurt and I are organising an expedition up Mount Toubkal in August/September 2010 to raise money for Help For Heroes. Mount Toubkal is a peak which stands within the Atlas Mountain Range in south-western Morocco. At 4167 metres, it is the highest peak in North Africa. To add to the challenge, we are expecting temperatures in excess of 40’C at this time of the year.

The reason we are raising money for Help For Heroes is because we believe in supporting the brave soldiers who have risked all for their country – most of all those that were not fortunate enough to return home in good health. Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007 in response to the desire of ordinary people to do something practical to help our wounded servicemen and women get the best help, support and futures that they deserve. If you want to help us to help them, please sponsor us on our Mount Toubkal 2010 challenge.

Please visit our online fundraising page www.justgiving.com/mounttoubkal2010 where you can read more about our expedition and make a secure online donation. As we get closer to the event, we will be updating it with news and photos on how our training and preparation is going. There will also be a blog and photos telling everyone how we did on the expedition itself after the event.

You can support Team Toubkal 2010 and Help For Heroes further by posting our link www.justgiving.com/mounttoubkal2010 on your facebook, bebo, twitter or any other networking site. Below is a paragraph you can add in your blog or post on your wall:

In August this year, a team of 8 people are going on an expedition up Mount Toubkal to raise money for the charity HELP FOR HEROES.

Thank you very much in anticipation for your help and support. With your donations, no matter how great or small, we can make a difference to those that deserve it most!!!

Please forward this email to your friends and family. Who will in turn forward it to their friends and family.

On behalf of Help For Heroes and Team Toubkal 2010, thank you very much.

Kind regards,


UPDATE: Pro Darts player Chris ‘Mace the Ace’ Mason has joined Team Toubkal 2010! That’s fantastic news for the team and should really help raise awareness of the charity expedition.
A very worthy cause and not a pedestrian climb by any means. Let’s help these lads out, shall we? Help them help our troops at www.justgiving.com/MountToubkal2010.
