First and foremost we want to make clear that ALL donations via this website go to Arthur Rank, with absolutely NONE going towards expedition costs. You can be assured that every penny will be going to this wonderful charity.
And so on to the expedition ......
In October 2013, two great friends Tim Titmarsh and Keith Gallois, two ordinary middle-aged family men, are embarking on a three week expedition to trek to Everest Base Camp and onward to the peak of Kala Pathhar. At a height of nearly 18,000ft, we are going to suffer. Apart from the blisters and aching muscles, we will be faced with obvious mountain dangers, particularly acute mountain sickness (apparently 2% of trekkers get cerebal oedema and need immediate evacuation- yikes).
Keen to support our local hospices, Tim will trek to raise money for the Arthur Rank Hospice, whilst Keith will do so for the East Anglia's Children's Hospice's (EACH). By donating on this page you will be able to support Arthur Rank and make Tims undoubted suffering all the more worth it.
Our journey begins now with lots of training. If you fancy watching us suffer then please subscribe to our blog at www.elytoeverest.com .
Of course, if you can donate on this page that would be fantastic.
Thank you so much,
