Team members; an intrepid group of 20 Trekkers of all ages, 15 of who are Medics from across the UK will set out on the 6th October 2019 to Trek to Everest base camp @ 5,300 metres and on to Black Rock ( Kala Patthar) at 5,600 metres (18,000 feet +)
The Trekkers will be raising funds to support Mary Ann Hospice which provides vital palliative and end of life services to North Warwickshire and beyond. Mary Ann needs your help to continue to support the many thousands of patients and their carers needing their care through some of life’s most difficult challenges. The Rapid Response Service, a new and innovative service which currently provides care within one hour to fully support patients and their carers over night in their own homes in their last 72 hours is expanding to cover both night and day.
We can only continue to expand this vital service with additional funding. National charities such as Macmillan will only support funding of services or staff for very limited periods, supporting this local hospice ensures all funds will be used to deliver these vitals services. All funds raised from the Trek will go direct to clinical services as all Trekkers will be self funded, so please do dig deep and support Mary Ann, all money goes directly into patient services not administration and management costs!!!
A huge thank you to the sponsors of the Everest Base Camp 2019, Mary Ann Evans Hospice, Type Creative, Guhring, Coventry Rugby Club, Bedworth Nearly 41 Club, Bedworth Lions Club, Plant Installations Coventry and Eastcote Wealth Management. A Prayer Flag will be taken to be placed at Everest Base Camp with the logo of each sponsor.
