CAN supporters have undertaken some very unusual and challenging fundraising activities over the years, but next month sees a truly extraordinary fundraising event.
In April 2015 a British expedition will set out to climb Mt Everest by the North Ridge. En-route to the top, they will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Highest formal black tie Dinner Party.
The menu has been devised by Sat Bains, the Two Michelin Star Chef, who will accompany the team and cook the record breaking meal high on the mountain. In a symbolic gesture to thank the Sherpa community for its many sacrifices, the expedition climbers will serve the high altitude Sherpas to this delicious meal.
The expedition is being led by ex Royal Marine and Everest mountaineer Neil Laugthon, who like Doug Scott has climbed the highest peaks on each continent – the ‘Seven Summits’.
CAN is delighted to have been chosen as the charity to benefit from the climb and Doug wished the team well saying “What a great thing to enable others to climb to the highest place in the world. Thank you for supporting CAN and the poor rural communities of Nepal whilst preparing to achieve your goal”
