Back in March we told you about our creative director Kate, and her trek across Everest in aid of the Myasthenia Gravis Association. Five months on and Kate and her father Tony, who joined her on the trip, are returned from their travels, and as of last week have raised a phenomenal £1585 for their efforts!
They both had an amazing time, despite some delays caused by a highly inconvenient volcano! They started their journey flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, and then endured 16 days of trekking in sub zero temperatures, across extreme mountainous terrain.
Myasthenia Gravis is an auto-immune disease which is characterized by fluctuating and sometimes fatal muscle weakness. The charity works to aid the development of improved diagnosis techniques and better treatment for Myasthenia Gravis, so it really is a very worthwile cause.
Before she left, we gave Kate a little gift to show our support and wish her luck on her trip. Kutuu created a beautiful personalised necklace, shown above against the magnificent Everest backdrop.
Well done Kate and Tony!
