This month will see Jan Jones, one of our colleagues at Phillip Bates & Co, raising money for children’s hospice Claire House, by trekking in the Himalayas.
Jan, part of our accountancy team, will be travelling to Nepal to trek to Everest Base Camp, a trek of over 80 miles at high altitude and temperatures as low as -20oC.
In October, she will also be attempting to run the London Marathon as the second part of her attempt to raise a minimum of £2,500.
As many of you will know, Claire House is a local charity which helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full, creating wonderful memories and bringing back a sense of normality to family life.
Jan said: “Travelling to Everest Base Camp is one of my lifetime ambitions, as I have always wanted to walk in the Himalayas and see the world’s highest mountains. I am lucky to have the opportunity to achieve this while helping such a worthwhile cause.
“I am currently also working really hard in training for the Marathon. I started running last year managing 2 miles, so you can see that there was plenty of scope for improvement.
“I have discovered that 26 miles is a really long way! I am currently running 13 miles and I hope to build on this during the rest of the year.”
If you would like to sponsor Jan you can make a donation directly to Claire House, using her Just Giving page at the link.
Thank you so much for your support.
