Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish are planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for a paediatric care unit, following care received by Jordan’s four-day-old son Eliot when he suffered a brain haemorrhage.
“While in hospital I decided that I would focus myself on doing something positive for the ward and trying to raise enough money to pay for a new bed for them,” he explains.
“Oli asked immediately if he could join me and help raise as much awareness for this cause as possible. In January we will fly to Tanzania where we will climb Mt Kilimanjaro over the course of 8 days.”
Their current fundraising total is £13,812, and they’re aiming to raise £100,000. Visit Just Giving to donate.
“In terms of Eliot’s recovery we still have a very long way to go and we are taking each day at a time,” he adds, “however he is still alive to fight, he is breathing on his own and we are seeing small improvements every day.
“He is a little fighter and has shown amazing signs of recovery already, even at this early stage. We owe that completely to the Nurses, Doctors, Neurologists and staff at PICU.”
