Our projects turn heads and inspire others. The most recent endeavour gained media attention in 2017 Shadi created The Matterhorn Fundraising Challenge with the aim of reaching a fundraising goal as high as the mountain itself. Reaching the top of this iconic peak is no mean feat but Shadi had to overcome and extreme fear of heights in order to achieve her dream. Her passion that ‘Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone’ saw her stand on top of the Matterhorn in July that year and along with other fundraising initiatives such as The Make A Difference Ball raised over £75,000 for local children’s charity The Murray Parish Trust.

For 2019 Shadi is embarking on the next level of projects to challenge herself and others to include the North-South traverse of Mt Elburus (the highest peak in Europe) and leading a group of non-climbers to Mt Kilimanjaro’s Uhuru peak.
