Many congratulations to Richard Simms and Ken Strang who recently trekked to the most iconic base camp of all, at the foot of the greatest mountain in the world – Mount Everest and raised money for AMH. Their challenge was modestly named “Richard & Ken’s Wee Walk in the Hills!”
Surrounded by spectacular high altitude scenery and views of the mighty Himalayan peaks, it took 10 days to trek to Everest Base Camp, which sits at a height of 5600 metres above sea level with less than half the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere. Once they reached their destination they had to turn around and trek back down again, walking for 17 days in total and conquering two peaks and two passes.
To date the pair have raised £1,375.13! Thank you so much and well done!!!!!
