One of our stalwart supporters, Graham Lawson, has decided to take on the challenge of a lifetime and do a trek to Everest Base Camp. Graham has been a supporter for many years now since his daughter Tabby was diagnosed with cancer when she was 6. Tabby is now well and one of our Young Ambassadors – an enthusiastic and successful fundraiser too! Graham has already climbed Kilimanjaro and trekked in the Arctic for us but this is in a different league. Everest Base Camp trek is tough.
He has even managed to persuade four friends to join him on this challenge in April 2018. Hats off to him, Janette and Patrick Statham, and Peter and Margaret Andrews.
The photo below was when Graham was training for the Arctic Trek – you might recognise his companion! (none other than Scottish Rugby legend, Gavin Hastings)
If you would like to donate to their fundraising page you can do so by clicking here.
They have a fundraising event coming up on 12 April – a winetasting at Murrayfield – only £12 per ticket (and you get £10 to spend at Majestic wines in the future so it’s a real bargain). If you want to know more about their fundraiser then please do contact us and we can put you in touch with the trek team.
