Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit our Just Giving page.

David and Georgina sucessfully trekked to Everest Base Camp, summited Kala Pattar and made it home in one piece! A big thank you for all of your support. You helped us to reach our goal of raising £1000 and the members of TVAP will benefit as a result.

This October Team Harrison (also known as David & Georgina) will be attempting to reach Everest Base Camp (5364m) and climb Kala Pattar (5545m), a 'small' neighbouring peak for views of Everest itself. The trek will take 13 days to complete, slowly ascending through Sherpa villages, passing monastries and glaciers and hopefully culminating in the opportunity to trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar.

Not only will we have the cold, basic conditions and the inevitable altitude sickness to contend with but we also have each other...this alone is surely reason enough to donate?!

Every week I, Georgina, volunteer at 'Fun Club' with Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP). Fun Club is a social club for adults with special needs. Weekly activities range from X factor style karaoke (a favourite!) to scavenger hunts and cupcake decorating. Fun Club provides an opportunity for the members to socialise with their peers and try their hand at new activities...and for the volunteers to get stuck in! I'm not sure who has more fun...

TVAP is a unique and invaluable resource. Families, children and adults travel from across the southeast to use its facilities and take part in events. To find out more please visit the TVAP website: www.tvap.co.uk. Every penny raised will go directly to TVAP...we hope you can support us.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Many thanks,

Georgina & David
