Supporting Gail Emms Everest challenge

Gail Emms MBE tackling Mount Everest challenge for charity

Former English international badminton star, Gail Emms MBE, is taking on a mountain challenge to climb Mount Everest and raise money for charity.

A number of charities will benefit from her efforts: Sports Aid, Access Sport and Climb Your Mountain.

SportsAid helped Gail and my family from 15 years old and kickstarted her badminton. There is no funding for talented sports kids, just the bank of mum and dad, so many kids have to drop out as they cannot afford the coaching, travelling or equipment needed to carry on. That was where SportsAid step in.

Access Sport are a social enterprise charity who do some brilliant supporting inner city areas get access to sports coaches and equipment to help combat crime and gang culture

Climb Your Mountain focus on people who are dealing with mental health by organising trips for those who want to sign up to something life-changing. They help young people deal with their issues with outdoor expeditions and mentoring / coaching programmes .
