Long-time supporter David Tait takes on "The Savage Mountain"
David Tait, a Managing Director of Credit Suisse, will tomorrow (13 June) embark on his most dangerous expedition to date in hope of raising £1m to support our fight against child abuse.
David, 53, has climbed Mount Everest 5 times raising almost £1m in total, but he has raised the bar and the level of risk by taking on K2 - "The Savage Mountain".
As a long-time supporter and child abuse survivor, David is determined to make sure we reach as many children as possible through our work.
David's climbs are entirely self-funded, with money raised from his K2 climb going toward our Schools Service, which has now reached almost 1 million children in primary schools across the UK.
For David, it's worth the pain of revisiting his past if it means that people understand just how destructive sexual abuse is.
