About Team Endeavour

Team Endeavour raises money and awareness for children and families of the Armed Forces who are suffering through Illness, Hardship and Poverty.

Our Story

Team Endeavour is a charitable organisation made up of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, some of which are serving military and ex military. The team was brought together and founded by Ben Hughes, team leader, who recruited friends and professionals to form a team to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for charity. Being proactive and supporting a charity was close to Ben’s heart, especially after hearing fellow team member and friend Marc Roberts was diagnosed with cancer in June 2012.

A Charity Launches

The charity launched its first major fundraising event at The Tower of London using silent auctions supported by a variety of businesses. It was a resounding success and was a great start to the journey of fundraising for the charity climb of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The challenge that lied ahead was not to be underestimated by the team who all worked tirelessly to raise money, undertaking pre training sessions and continue to work full time. In May 2014 Team Endeavour embarked on the climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, plagued with altitude sickness, pushing their bodies and minds to the limit, the team managed to reach the top and exceed their fundraising target.

The greatest achievement apart from their personal ambition to do their best for the charity, was the fact that Marc Roberts managed to complete the challenge whilst still fighting his battle with cancer.

In June 2016 Team Endeavour completed the world famous Race Across America – a gruelling challenge in which the Team cycled non stop from the West coast of America to the East. The cyclists and crew members pulled together in a mammoth effort to meet their target to ensure they achieved their goal of reaching the finish line and raising money for the chosen charities.
