Everest Charity Challenge by bpm on 16 November 2006 12:36pm
 
A friend (David Jones)and I (Barnaby Milbourn) are doing a trek for charity to Mount Everest Base Camp next year, we will be raising money for The Brain Research Trust. Not just a spur of the moment decision but a culmination of a series of events. 1) A colleague died last year from a brain tumour, 2) A few years ago I was in an accident and told I may never walk again, 3)We both need to get fit, 4) Thought it would be fun and MANY other reasons. We want to raise a minimum of £5000 and were looking for different ways in doing this over the next year. One idea was to hold a talk about the Himalayan Region by a professional speaker and sell the tickets with all proceeds going to charity. Any ideas? Obviously the man himself (MP)would be an ideal spokeperson but with his schedule I will not be holding my breath. All suggestions gratefully recieved! Thanks Barny

What a noble cause. I wish you all the best for successt. Of course, you could still inquire and perhaps, if Michael isn't available, he could make suggestions.

How would you go about contacting him? I know he writes messages for the site but I doubt he has the time to read all the chats.
