FIRST on EVEREST, a series of unique and very special fundraising events for the work of CAN and Promise Nepal in November 2010, raised over £46,000 to help fund CAN’s health, education and welfare projects.
The £46,000 was raised via:
At the RGS in London on Wed 17th November legendary mountaineers including Reinhold Messner, Peter Habeler, George Band, Doug Scott, Erhard Loretan and Tom Hornbein celebrated those who dared to be the first on the world’s highest mountain …..from the first ascent, first traverse of Everest to the first ascent without bottled oxygen. Further Everest themed CAN events also took place in Oxford, Edinburgh and Glasgow featuring a selection of speakers.
Thank you to everyone who made the events such a success – from the generous sell-out audiences, the venue staff and volunteers, to the mountaineering stars who shared their stories. The funds raised will greatly support CAN’s work building porter shelters in Nepal.Go Back
