This special event will also commemorate the 40th anniversary of the first British ascent of Mount Everest in 1975, which was led by Bonington and put Scott on the summit. All funds raised by the project will go directly to the Community Action Nepal (CAN) Earthquake Appeal.
Doug Scott appeals to the public:
“Lives have been devastated, homes destroyed, families bereaved and children orphaned. It is so incredibly sad. Despite all that has happened I am optimistic. The Nepalese are resilient and resourceful, but they need our help. Please support #ClimbForCAN, either by getting behind the Sir Chris Bonington 24 Hour Everest Ice Wall Challenge, by creating your own challenge or simply donating on our JustGiving page. Any money that you give to CAN goes straight to the coal face. Please help. Whatever you can give goes a long way. Thank you”.
