Adventure raises �4,000 for heroes

Steve Bratton and I would like to thank all those that made a donation in support of our recent trip to the Himalayas.

While, on a personal level, Steve and I found the trip incredibly rewarding, we also managed to raise the credible sum of just under �4,000 for the UK forces charity Help 4 Heroes.

Many worthy and deserving service personnel will benefit from the money raised.

I have posted an article and a small selection of photographs from our trip on the webpage we set up where readers will be able to share in our experience and have the opportunity to make a donation. The web address is and this will remain active until December 31, 2010.
