My Challenge – Barrie Martin

My name is Barrie and I am 44 years old. I am happily married to Andrea and have three fantastic children Michael 21, Daniel 14 and Rebecca 11.

We live in Huddersfield and I have been a roofer for the last 25 years.

I was presented with the idea of climbing Kilimanjaro by a friend who is also doing the challenge and was instantly drawn to the opportunity.

I am not familiar with Barnsley Hospice living in Huddersfield but I have had friends and relatives in Kirkwood Hospice and know what a fantastic job all the hospices do.

I am really looking forward to meeting new people and doing lots of fundraising.

On a personal note the challenge will be the a good kick up the backside for me to stop smoking, get fit and help a great cause!

If you would like to support me and help raise money for Barnsley Hospice and achieve my goal of reaching the top of Kilimanjaro I would be really grateful.
