Brian Leppard, in partnership with his brother-in-law, is tackling the mountain in a bid to raise over £5000 for the British Heart Foundation having both lost family members and friends to heart conditions.
Leppard said: “I am hopeful that friends and business colleagues in the industry will help Barry and I reach our initial goal of £5000. I am a serial fund raiser for BHF and I would like to think that for anyone out there in the intermediary and lender community, whether they have or just know family members and friends who are suffering or have lost people close to them because of heart problems, might consider supporting our expedition.”
The duo want to raise as much as they can to help fund research into improvements in diagnosis, prevention and rehabilitation of people suffering from heart conditions.
He added: “We are nearly two thirds of the way to our target. Knowing the inherent generosity of our business contacts I am sure we will reach our goal.”
