Simon Albert, BCAb

 

Simon has made a business from fundraising and helping to develop and perpetuate the whole Charity Challenge genre of fundraising. As a young man he participated in the more traditional types of dare-devil fundraising such as Bungee Jumping and Skydiving, raising considerable amounts for charity in his own right. As an early adopter of the trekking and climbing adventure travel charity fundraiser he voluntarily organised two groups which raised over £100,000.

“Simon has inspired many thousands of people to step out of their comfort zones, push themselves to their limits in order to achieve incredible things. His enthusiasm is infectious”

 

Simon’s expertise in Adventure Travel has enabled him to move from a pure travel fund raising organisation to a disaster relief organisation. He enlisted the help of several corporates in creating a re-building programme after the Tsunami in Sri Lanka. This programme has now been rolled out to build schools and classrooms across some of the poorest regions of the world. His organisation has helped 1700 other organisations raise over £40m.
