My name is Logan Price, I have been working for O’Halloran & O’Brien Ltd since I completed my A Levels in 2019. Recently I have experienced some problems with my mental health which resulted in me taking some extended time off work. However, I am now planning my return and working hard to improve my mental health each and every day.

I am an Assistant Site Manager and I am currently undertaking a Site Supervisory Apprenticeship studying at London South Bank University.

I have, as part of my rehabilitation, set out some personal challenges for 2022. All of which I believe will help me to achieve a better mental and physical disposition. Whilst thinking about how this could benefit me personally, I also considered, how this could potentially benefit others.

I know the subject of mental health in the construction sector continues to largely remain unspoken and is a difficult topic for many people to discuss. I am therefore planning to embark on a number of physical challenges in order to raise money for both the Lighthouse Charity specifically to benefit the mental health and well-being of construction workers and State of Mind Sport who also do some great work to support young people and those affected my mental health issues.

I am firstly as part of my endurance training looking to undertake the 4 Peaks Challenge namely to summit Ben Nevis, Scotland (1,345m), Helvellyn, Lake District, England (950m), Snowdon, Wales (1,085m) and Carrauntoohil, Ireland (1,038m) within a 48-hour window between 12th and 14th May 2022.

Separately I am also seeking to climb Mont Blanc, which is the tallest mountain in Western Europe, standing at 4,809m. between 5th and 9th August 2022.

These challenges would not only be a massive personal achievement for myself but would also be an opportunity for me to help others and continue to raise awareness of mental health issues for those in the construction industry and if possible, specifically for young people and apprentices like myself.

The 4 Peaks Challenge has been organised by the Lighthouse Charity and I have already achieved the minimum funding requirement. I plan to use this as a platform to build up my endurance and stamina for Mont Blanc. This is slightly different proposition, there is only one window annually, for approximately 12 weeks, between May and August, when it is advisable to consider climbing Mont Blanc particularly for someone with my limited experience. My solo climb has been booked although it has been recommended that any assent is supported by a trained and experienced guide.

My overall target is to raise something in excess £25k to be utilised for the health and well-being of construction workers and young people and I hope that you may consider supporting my request.
