Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Paul and Aaron Anderson from West Kirby on the Wirral are attempting to climb to the top of Mount Everest in May 2024 to raise vital funds for Dementia UK, the specialist dementia nursing charity.

The father and son team are aiming to raise enough money to fund two new Admiral Nurses – specialist dementia nurses who offer life-changing support to families affected by all forms of dementia.

Paul and Aaron are taking on the challenge in honour of Paul’s mother, who has vascular dementia and lives in a care home in Hoylake on the Wirral. Having witnessed the daily challenges of living with dementia, they want to ensure that more people with the diagnosis and their families can access the support of an Admiral Nurse in the local area.

The pair have extensive climbing experience in the UK and Europe. They have both previously visited the Everest region in Nepal, climbing Mera Peak (6,476m) and reaching the North Col on Everest at 7,100m as part of a team that set a Guinness World Record for the highest dinner party in the world.

Paul and Aaron will be attempting the route first taken by Mallory and Irvine in 1924 on the north side of Everest, beginning in Tibet and climbing to the summit at 8,849m.The pair will be climbing with the highly experienced Sherpa Guiding Company SKA Adventures https://www.ska-adventures.com/ led by Mr. Nima Kanchha Sherpa who has been a high altitude climbing guide for the last 18 years, summiting Everest and other 8,000m peaks including Cho You (8,201m), and Manaslu (8,156m).
