Here we go – the ordinary person taking part in an amazing adventure! A group of 20 of us of all abilities and experience will be walking to Everest Base Camp this October. This will be a massive challenge both physically and mentally for me but importantly will take me to a new personal fund-raising level.
We are all taking part to hopefully raise sizeable funds to assist the Mary Ann Evans Hospice in Nuneaton with the expansion of their Hospice at Home Rapid Response team to now include a full overnight service covering the whole of North Warwickshire. This service provides support to those in the last weeks of their lives, and as important gives vital support to their families. This expansion will cost Mary Ann £70,000 in the next year, money that they have no option but to raise from the public and their supporters/friends.
I have been heavily involved with the Bedworth Lions Club since 1988 with me making many good friends and giving me a lot of personal satisfaction with the great work we do – the Santa Sleigh and Civic Bonfire are but two of the events we have put on for many years. During this time I have had the honour of being appointed President three times. Sadly three of my real Lions mates have passed so I will be taking a Lions Club prayer flag to Everest Base Camp in memory of Tony Reeve, David Knight Tony Haywood and recently Pete Nash.
All funds raised will go directly to Mary Ann as all trekkers are self-funded paying their own trek costs.
Please dig deep to support me on this amazing adventure (and wish me luck!)
My best regards
