Martin Hibbert, who was paralysed in the Manchester Arena bombing, has set himself a challenge to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in September. His mission is to turn the act of terror into a force for good by shifting the spotlight away from those who tried to end his life and towards the charity that helped him rebuild it - SIA. As we’re in a Paralympic year, Martin plans to take a Paralympic torch with him to highlight the Paralympic values of determination, equality, courage and inspiration, as well as make this a moment for change and hope as we emerge from lockdown.
Martin’s Mountain has already raised almost £30,000 and reached hundreds of thousands of people via coverage on Good Morning Britain, ITV news, BBC news, Sky news and local news across the UK.
