On 16 July 2011, Vincent Igoe and a team of 24 members from Agri Energy will scale the highest mountain on British mainland, Ben Nevis, in an effort to raise vital money for the Schiehallion Ward in Yorkhill Hospital.
Vincent’s son, Anthony Igoe, was diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma Cancer in October 2010 aged just 3 years old.
He underwent 25 operations and procedures and a hard course of chemotherapy on the Schiehallion Ward in Yorkhill Hospital to save his life.
To say thank you and raise money for the underfunded children’s ward, Anthony’s parents Vincent and Claire have organised the Ben Nevis Fundraiser to raise a target of £20,000 for the hospital and Agri Energy have agreed to match any money raised up to this figure.
On the 16 July 2011, 24 team members from Agri Energy, where Vincent is a general manager, will scale the highest mountain on the British mainland.
chiehallion is the name of a mountain in Perthshire, which translates to “FairyMountain” in English. Miracles are performed on the Schiehallion ward on a daily basis, with doctors and nurses fighting to save children the most vulnerable among the society.
