The founder of LGBT+ charity Four pillars is climbing the equivalent height of Mount Everest in his own home to raise vital funds for the charity.
Due to the lockdown the charity’s base and cafe, Four Unity in Aberdeen Market, is closed.
Typically, it would act as a safe space for members of the north-east’s LGBT community to meet, but also bring in income for the charity’s work across the region.
To fill in that funding gap, Four Pillars founder Deejay Bullock has decided to “climb Everest” in his Aberdeen home, by walking up his stairs 124 times every day for the next 26 days.
This equates to a massive 58,032 steps.
Mr Bullock said: “The challenge is very difficult, but I wanted to demonstrate the uphill battle LGBT+ individuals face throughout life just to be themselves, to be accepted and to feel loved.
“I’m doing this for 26 days, many members of the community do this their entire lives.
“I’m so grateful for all the support I have received whilst doing this challenge so far, but the battle is not over and I will continue to fight on through this challenge as we all do through life”.
Mr Bullock will be filming himself completing the steps and posting videos on the Four Pillars Facebook page, along with advice to the LGBT+ community.
