Decca are raising cash for cancer support by climbing the tallest peak in Scotland – by night.

They’re nuts, of course. But if you give enough money they might just come to their senses.

Apparently, it’s organised this way so that no-one misses so much as one day’s work at the spinning table.

Just give. Here.


They’re doing it on my birthday.

On Saturday 11 July 2015 Team Decca will scale Ben Nevis during the night to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support


Our goal is to raise over £10,000 and we will not be able to do this without your help


Twenty of us will leave London on the Saturday morning and that night we will climb Britain’s highest peak in the dark. We’ll reach the top by sunrise, head straight back down and we’ll then travel back to London the same day. All in 48 hours! Then it’s back to work the following morning

It sounds tough, and it will be a challenge for all of us but not as challenging as those who are suffering from cancer. That is why we will be asking you to help donate to our chosen cause


Thanking you in advance for your kind donations over the coming weeks!



Dickon Stainer, Rebecca Allen, Tom Lewis, Laura Monks, Ash Noonan, Andrew Dalton, Anna Malone, Caroline Crick, Chris Kershaw, Ellie Thomson, Emma Price, Esme Strathcole, Fiona McLachlan, Holli Sullivan, Jessica Simmonds, Kevin Long, Noorjhan Flanagan, Oli Harrop, Rachel Haller & Shona Hamilton
