Supporting people affected by Addison's
- together, we're stronger.

Climbing Mont Blanc

In June 2015, Stuart Jones and his friend Richard Topping climbed Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Western Europe, to raise money for the ADSHG and Great Ormond Street Hospital. Stuart has Addison’s himself, so this was an amazing achievement and we are so grateful to them for choosing to support us in this way.
