Audrey tells us more about her exciting challenge:
“Between the 1st and the 30th June 2015 I climbed Falkland Hill (East Lomond) 27 times to raise some money for remote Nepalese communities. In total, I climbed just over 29035ft, the height of Mount Everest. As there were days I couldn’t climb there were times when multiple ascents had to be made on the same day to reach my target. The route I took was the north route from Falkland village to the summit, climbing 1082 feet each time. Every round trip took about an hour.
The recent earthquakes in Nepal have devastated a country I love and with which I have a strong, personal connection. I have been deeply saddened thinking about the remote mountain villages I have been fortunate enough to walk through during my visits to the country and worried about how those communities will be able to rebuild lives which were already difficult. Many of these communities are hugely dependent on the income generated from trekkers and climbers. Post earthquake, no one knows when, or if, tourism will return to Nepal and it’s impossible to imagine what the future holds for these communities without it.”
Audrey also tells us the wonderful news that she raised £1,567.35 and the fantastic news that her employer [Diageo] will match fund £1,500.00 bringing Audrey’s grand total to £3,067.35. Thank you Diageo for your support.Go Back
