Story

Denise Van Outen and Lydia Bright are reuniting for their second charity challenge together, trekking through the Himalayas for Brain Tumour Research and is kindly sponsored by SchoolExams.co.uk

The tough five-day trek during November 2017 will see the team walking for up to 12 hours a day on mountainous terrain, camping under the stars and using “improvised” toilets. They will be trudging harsh mountain paths at high altitude across the world’s highest mountain range, passing through remote villages as they complete the 85km challenge.

Denise said: “Doing the last challenge for Brain Tumour Research really opened my eyes about this cause. Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer and it is shocking that research into this disease is so underfunded. With a young daughter myself, I think that everybody should be doing something to raise money to help eradicate brain tumours. I have grown very fond of this fantastic charity and I’m determined to do whatever I can to help Brain Tumour Research make a difference.”
