Charlie Bird has appealed to his supporters to send in their photos from his hugely successful charity fundraiser for a new book.

Earlier this month, the former RTÉ journalist and broadcaster announced he was close to partnering with a publisher to document the Climb with Charlie charity.

In a message published on Twitter today, Mr Bird asked his supporters to send in their photos from the day as he would like to include two photos of each charity climb in the new book.

He also confirmed that they hope to publish the book in June.

“Hello everyone, I hope you have a nice Easter break. Could you all help me spread the word about the photo book we plan to release in June? We’re looking for two photos of each location that hosted a Climb With Charlie event. Photos@climbwithcharlie.ie,” he wrote.

After months of planning and an amazing response from the public, the charity initiative took place on Saturday April 2nd.

The charity has raised over €2.3 million for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Pieta so far, and donations are still being received.

An estimated 10,000 supporters joined him on his climb of Croagh Patrick that day as he fulfilled his ambition to scale the summit while highlighting the physical and mental challenges that so many people face.

In addition to the Croagh Patrick Challenge, nearly 200 separate Climb with Charlie fundraisers were held in Ireland, the US, South Africa, Australia and Spain.

Charlie, who worked at RTÉ for 38 years before retiring in 2012, said his health was “not great” as the terminal illness made daily tasks more difficult.

He has now lost his voice and communicates using state of the art technology that has cloned his voice.

The fundraiser will remain open for the next three months to gather funding.
