We are thrilled to share an inspiring story of determination, and community spirit. Barry Halpin, UAP’s National Sales Director, is embarking on an incredible journey that goes beyond personal challenges—it’s about making a difference and supporting a cause close to his heart.

Barry, along with some colleagues from the fenestration industry, is gearing up to climb the world’s highest freestanding mountain in September—none other than Mount Kilimanjaro, standing at just under 6000 meters. This monumental endeavour is not just a physical test; it’s aimed at raising awareness and funds for Kelly’s Heroes.

The Heart behind Kelly’s Heroes

Kelly’s Heroes, formerly known as We Mind & Kelly Matters, has a poignant origin. It was founded in 2019 following the tragic loss of Kelly Francesca Hewitt, a beloved daughter, sister, and friend. This charity stands as a beacon of hope, dedicated to honoring Kelly’s memory and championing mental health awareness.

The website serves as a fundraising platform, acknowledging the invaluable contributions of passionate individuals and communities who rally behind the cause. John, Kelly’s father, expresses profound gratitude for the unwavering support and commitment of everyone involved.

A Journey of Purpose and Resilience

Barry’s endeavor is not just about scaling heights; it’s about scaling barriers surrounding mental health. As he undertakes this daunting climb, he is not only seeking personal sponsorship but also inviting corporate support to amplify the impact.

Each step taken on Kilimanjaro symbolizes a step towards greater awareness, understanding, and support for mental health initiatives. Barry’s journey is a testament to the power of collective effort and the profound impact one person can make in fostering positive change.

How You Can Support

If you’re inspired by Barry’s mission and would like to contribute, there are several ways you can get involved:

Personal Sponsorship: Consider sponsoring Barry directly to support his climb and the cause.
