Everest, a high altitude challenge where participants reached
the Base Camp of the worlds highest mountain; Mount Everest.
Lee and Naz helped towards raising £50,000 for the charity
founded by The Duchess of York.Lee said "I feel this has
been a privilegde as well as a challenge. It was tough going,
both mentally and physically. I was very determined to complete
the challenge and raise the much needed funds for the work of
Children in Crisis.
Lee and Naz are aiming to raise as much as possible for Children
in Crisis and they are appealing to local people and companies
to help them reach that target. You can see our current sponsorship

The ten-day challenge took place from 18 September until 3 October
Children in Crisis exists to improve the lives of children around
the world affected by conflict, deprivation, poverty or other
hidden crises, by working with local communities to provide
education, healthcare and protection. Current programmes include
work in Afghanistan, Poland, Russia, the Ukraine, Sierra Leone,
the UK and China. Funds raised by the Trek Everest Challenge
will make a significant contribution to this work.
