While on this expedition we will be fund raising to help raise awareness of Guillian barres syndrome via facebook and justgiving.com,
To raise money and awareness for Guillain Barre Syndrome. Candice was from Warrington, in August of 2010 she passed away from Guillain Barre Syndrome on her 26th birthday. At first she was admitted to hospital with a mystery stomach illness, it took over a week to diagnose Guillain Barre, a horribly debilitating syndrome. It’s a rare condition, affecting only around 1 in 100,000, and it’s rare for anyone affected by it to die from it. The syndrome is so rare that it’s not even well known amongst the medical profession. So most of the money raised is to be spent on training days on Guillain Barre for Doctors and nurses.
This condition of the peripheral nervous system. It occurs when the body's immune system attacks part of the nervous system. The exact cause of Guillain-Barré syndrome is unknown. However, most people (around 60%) develop the condition shortly after having a viral or bacterial infection. It is thought infection may trigger the immune system to attack nerve roots and peripheral nerves.

The location for this charitable, developmental and adventurously themed journey will be on the Island of Mallorca, the largest landmass within the Spanish Balearic Islands Archipelago
We are going to operate within an environmental code of practice in order to minimise environmental impact of the expedition
Code of Practic
The entire expedition shows respect in a conserving manner, and operates with strict consideration to ethical codes of good environmental practice, while avoiding aggravating anthropogenic impacts on the on the island of Mallorca
-Walking where possible
-Use established approaches
-Cross referenced climbing dates with nesting dates

-Display correct climbing etiquette
-Drinking fresh running water
-Foster general 'good practice''
Balearic Group of Ornithology & Defense of Nature (GOB)
The objectives of this movement are to conserve, disseminate, and study the environment of the Balearic Islands.
They have an online 'conflict map' that displays the current sources/issues that are impacting Mallorca's environment, as well as conservation/protected areas.
We will be taking into consideration the information displayed, and act/plan accordingly. Also any issues or findings will be reported the GOB

Locations for The British Embassy, Police stations, Hospitals, Mountain Rescue bases, and Fire stations have been researched. As well as recording the numbers for the different emergency services.
There are two mountain rescue providers. One is the local fire service the 'Bombers del Consell de Mallorca', and the second rescue provision comes from the local/rural police force, the 'Guardia Civil'. Both services are currently free of charge, but travel insurance is recommended.
Specialist activity/climbing/adventure travel insurance will be purchased.
A check-in system has been established with a point of contact (Kieran's mum), as well as a failed communications plan.
