Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.tself

 

When I was a boy, I was inspired by my father’s tales of his exploits in the Khyber Pass during the Second World War, where he worked alongside Gurkha comrades who he deeply admired. The Gurkhas have won great respect and affection in Britain as evidenced by public support for the right of ex servicemen to live in the UK. Yet many former Gurkhas soldiers and their families in Nepal remain poor and live in difficult conditions. The GWT helps them. And with your support, more can be done. It is fitting to climb to raise support for GWT and its work in Nepal – the land of Everest and the Gurkhas. They are small but tough people, yet they stand tall – like Everest.

 

For more details on my climbing plans, visit:  http://steps-to-everest.yolasite.com/. My first step in training is to climb Mont Blanc between 26 May -  1 June 2011.
