Everest Challenge is Underway

Jo & Apeksha at Heathrow

The intrepid travellers start their journey

On Thursday our fundraising physios headed off to Nepal by way of Heathrow and Abu Dhabi.

Apeksha, having changed her mind several times, finally settled on the pink jacket. A good choice — it will certainly show up well against the snow!

Once in Kathmandu they will arrange the trip to Base Camp.

We look forward to following their journey and there’s still plenty of time to add your sponsorship if you would like to reward their efforts.

I’m sure my passport is somewhere!
