My story

The Members of Mid-Wirral Rotary Club intend to Climb the height of their hill located within 50 miles of where they were born thereafter called their "Birth Hill/Mountain" or an equivalent walking distance related to the height - 5 miles per 1000 feet. Under Covid-19 restrictions, climbing the stairs in their own houses. To be carried out over a 10 day period. Moneys raised to go via Mid-Wirral Rotary club to "Stick & Step" Wirral and "Classrooms in the Clouds" one of our International Charities we are supporting this year based in Nepal. The area has been badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rotary Mid-Wirral Club This year's Challenge 2021-22.

Our aim this year with all that Covid has thrown at us is to help the next generation who have missed out on education. "Classrooms in the Clouds" in Nepal are building a school library to enable youngsters to be exposed to reading material and they have willingly agreed to name it in honour of our dear friend AW-J. We will also be supporting Wirral Youth Zone charity to set up a book library at "The Hive" Birkenhead for local children.

The inspiration for this was hearing about the Dolly Parton Imagination Foundation, set up because her own father was illiterate, and through it she has now distributed 150 million books to youngsters in English speaking counties aged under 5 years of age. I thought that we, the club members, should climb the "Birth Mountain" of the person who Inspired and Influenced You at Aged 0-5 years old.

Choose any hill/mountain within a 50 mile radius of wherever your inspiring person was born. This is likely to be ones parents or grand-parents or relatives or close family friends who spent time reading to you at the age of 0 to 5.

Calculate its height. Either climb it, or its equivalent height or appropriate distance (at rate of 1000 feet height climbed equates to 5 miles length) or even a mixture of climbing & walking. This can be done at any time and over anytime during the month July 2021. You don't need to do it "from 9 to 5" as per the song!! It can be done using your stairs at home, or outside or even on the "golf course" provided you are actually physically walking or climbing. I do understand some members might find this challenging.

Video or photography yourself doing the challenge and send the images to Andrew Cain for inclusion on our Facebook pages.

Tell your friends and family what you are up to and let them know of the "Give as you Live" website - https://donate.giveasyoulive.com/fundraising/climbing-your-birth-hillmountain There is also a box on the web site that enables the claiming of "Gift-Aid" on donations where appropriate. An alternative principally for members can be by donating via our treasurer, Stephen Bell - just send him an email . The email address is :- treasurer@midwirral.rotary1180.org

If you also let me know what you have climbed I can add it to our "Give as you Live" page.

Contacts have been made with Fellow Rotarians in both North Wirral and Kathmandu to aid "Classrooms in the Clouds" project and support is forthcoming. It is also hoped that we may be therefore eligible to apply for a Rotary International Grant. Additionally members have also been liaising with colleagues from "The Hive"

All children throughout the world have had their education seriously disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic and this is an attempt to remedy this for some youngsters. Thanks for all your help,

Best wishes and good luck to you all,

Samden would like to share few more pictures of our teachers Lami Sherpa and Aruna Rai who had hiked to their birth hill mountain. Their destination is called Panch Pokhari, which in English translates to “five ponds”. There are five ponds in close proximity so, the place is called 5 ponds. It is also considered a sacred pond by the Hindus. Many people visit the pond for pilgrimage. The pond is at the height of 4350m i.e 14,271.00 ft. The team took 11 hours to reach the destination beginning at the altitude of 1800m i.e 5905.00ft. They spent a day close to the destination and returned the next day. Hopefully on our Facebook page!

Roger completed the virtual climbing of the three highest mountains in his country of birth: Scafell Pike, Scafell and Helvellyn, a total of 9589 feet.

He used my total walking mileage of just under 48 miles which included various Wirral walks, walks in the North East, prescription deliveries in Neston, rounds of golf at Mold GC etc to achieve this at 5 miles per 1000 feet...
