The Stephens Foundation was delighted to support Cliff Hands, from Fife, in one of the toughest challenges of his life. Cliff, an ex-paratrooper who now lives in Fife, completed a solo attempt on the Matterhorn, considered to be one of the most dangerous mountains in the world to climb.
Cliff is raising money for the Lomond Mountain Rescue Team, Support our Paras, which helps wounded soldiers and their families, and the Aberlour Childrens Trust who work with disadvantaged children in Scotland. All funds Cliff raised went directly to the charities, with Cliff meeting the costs of the expedition himself.
The Stephens Foundation was proud to be able to donate £600 to this incredible fund raising effort.
Cliff spent 12 years in the parachute regiment, seeing active service in Kosovo and Iraq as well as being part of a successful hostage rescue mission, working alongside the SAS, in Sierra Leone.
