Welcome to the Virtual Climb charity challenge page in support of Scotty’s LITTLE Soldiers, the charity for bereaved British Forces children.

You could climb the equivalent of Mount Snowdon, the Eiffel Tower or Big Ben!  Choose your target, pick a date to complete your challenge by and ask friends and family to sponsor you on your epic climb.

Here are a few target challenges to aim for:

Mount Everest = 58,070 Steps

Ben Nevis = 8,810 Steps

Mount Snowdon = 7,120 Steps

Scafell Pike = 6,180 Steps

Canary Wharf Tower = 1,600 Steps

Blackpool Tower = 1,036 Steps

Big Ben = 632 Steps

To join please follow the link to GivePenny to register and set up your fundraising page. Remember to share your challenge with friends and ask them to sponsor you or to ‘virtually join’ your climb from their own home. Log your fitness device and record your journey and update your supporters with your progress.

Struggling to fundraise?

Some of our supporters are keen to get involved and keep active but they aren’t in any position to ask for donations. Instead they are making a small donation to their own page and then asking others to join their team, share their journey and help to raise awareness of the charity.

If you are keen to fundraise and would like some useful hints and tips then take a look at our digital fundraising information pack here. Don’t forget that with GivePenny you can link your Spotify account and create a playlist especially for your walk. Others can even ‘donate’ a song for the list too. If you manage to raise £100 then we will send you a free t-shirt. Make sure to keep an eye on your inbox for an email from us.

If you have any questions then just get in touch with us at

Remember, when you raise £50 or more online we’ll send you a special Scotty’s morale patch. Raise over £100 online and a FREE running vest or t-shirt will be on it’s way to you!
