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 fund raising so far at www.justgiving.com/lw

The ten-day challenge took place from 18 September until 3 October 2004.

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.
