Lisa summits the White Mountain for the #RMfamily

03/07/2018

Our epic fundraiser Lisa Ronson last weekend topped Europe’s highest mountain, MT Blanc as she raised funds for The Royal Marines Charity and Maggie’s Cancer Centers.

After successfully winning an experience in the auction at our London Dinner in October 2017, Lisa decided that this would be a fantastic opportunity to evolve her prize into a fundraising expedition. Mt Blanc raised 4,807.7 meters above sea level and is the world’s 11th highest mountain.

Making her final accent on Sunday 01 July, Lisa reached the summit in 10.5 hours, following a few tough days on harsh mountain terrain and slushy snow.

After descending the mountain, Lisa was surprised by her family, who had travelled to support Lisa and greet her as she finished her climb.
