A big thank you to everybody that sponsored and supported my trek to Nepal.  What an experience!  It was very challenging with the steep inclines and altitudes to contend with. However, with the support of so many people it was all made possible.  On behalf of myself and all of my friends at Castel Froma, thank you for your generosity and ongoing support.  I am so pleased that we have exceeded the target of £1000!!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.  

I've set myself the challenge of trekking the Annapurna region of the Himalayas of Nepal, home of some of the highest mountains in the world.  I aim to summit Poon Hill at 3210 metres.

The purpose of this trek is to raise funds for my friends at Castel Froma Neuro Care.  After lengthy discussions it was decided to create funds which would be specifically used for entertainment.

 Some of the activities that have taken place in recent months include wildlife presentations, live musicians and singers.  Theme days are popular with the Residents -  at the Medieval Day in July the dining room was decorated to look like a great hall and everyone dressed up and enjoyed a medieval banquet followed by a Birds of Prey Display where individual residents were able to handle some of the birds. All enjoyed the decorations, barbecue and steel band at the Caribbean Day.

Knowing how much the residents enjoyed the entertainment we aim to continue with our fundraising so that we can provide stimulating and enjoyable activities.
