Matthew Dieumegard-Thornton Aiming to become one of the youngest British climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest during 2012, raising money for Global Angels and supported by Yell

At 21, I am aiming to become one of the youngest British climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest. After years of training and a life-time of dreaming, I hope to reach the top of the world’s highest mountain and in doing so, raise money for international charity Global Angels to provide disadvantaged children and their communities with access to safe drinking water.

With sponsorship and support from global digital services provider Yell, I want to raise £8,848 – the height of Everest in metres. I am also an ambassador for Climate Unchange, a global webshop that enables individuals and businesses to offset their carbon footprints.

I left the UK on Friday, 30th March and am hoping to reach the summit before the end of May.
