A fantastic achievement from young Thomas Halford, who, with his mum, has climbed Everest during lockdown to raise money for the The Platelet Society! A huge thanks goes to Tom's air cadets 495 (Sutton Coldfield) Squadron, who supported and encouraged him throughout his climb, even providing ice picks and Tibetan prayer flags!

Thomas and Gayle Halford would like to sincerely thank everyone who has kindly sponsored them.

Platelet Labs Link Up: Week 4

This week we have clocked up a huge 2291 KM and climbed a total of 15,835m in height! In the 4 weeks of our challenge we have covered a enormous 8262 Km, climbed 61,294m in height, and were active for 581 hrs and 30 mins! What a fantastic effort!

A special thanks to the Italian groups who have also joined us along the way!

So how do we top that? Well, we all clearly need to cool down properly and so we are making our way back to Reading meeting there on Sunday night for a well deserved drink! πŸ₯‚πŸ»

And don't forget – you can always make a small donation to the Society to help support our Early Career Researchers training – just visit:
