Join The Lullaby Trust and other baby and child loss charities this summer and challenge yourself to climb the highest mountain in the British Isles overnight. Ben Nevis stands at an impressive 1343m (roughly 4000ft) and reaching the summit is guaranteed to be unforgettable experience. This collaborative event hopes to give those who need it the chance to walk and talk together, scaling new heights to unite and raise money for their chosen charity working to support bereaved families every day.
The overnight climb starts just after sunset; walkers should reach the summit of Ben Nevis just in time for sunrise! During the descent, the spectacular landscapes appear as the day grows lighter. A celebratory team breakfast will be served upon arrival back to the base. This event includes transfers to/from Glasgow Central Station, dinner and breakfast and experienced leaders and back-up support every step of the way.
“Losing a child is an unimaginable pain. A time where you can feel very alone in a big world. We will walk together and talk together, no mountain too tall as we aim for our stars on the week before Father’s Day”
Big Steps for Small Feet is a chance for our charities to unite as one, in togetherness and hope, raising awareness for a cause that is close to each and every one of us. It’s an opportunity to show the world that collectively we can make a difference.

There’s no minimum fundraising target for this event, just raise as much as you can for The Lullaby Trust. The funds you raise will help families who have lost a baby to receive specialist help, fund research to prevent more babies from dying suddenly and unexpectedly, and allow more parents to receive advice on safer baby sleep. We are so grateful for any support you can offer.
