A student from Skegness hopes to raise thousands for deprived children when she embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to climb part of the world’s highest mountain in June.
Hannah Brown hopes to raise at least £2,500 for Childreach International when she jets off to Mount Everest with 30 fellow Nottingham Trent University students this summer.
She said: “I have always been a keen traveller and seeing as much as possible of the world is my main goal in life, so this is my current challenge.
“This challenge is going to be physically and mentally strenuous and although I am nervous, I know I will be helping an amazing organisation.”
The former Skegness Grammar School student has already raised more than £500 towards her target.
But before she sets off on the 15 day hike, climbing 5,000 feet through the Himalayan foothills to reach base camp, she needs a further £2,000.
Hannah and her mum Sarah have planned two table top sales at Chapel St Leonards Village Hall on Saturday morning on February 2 and 16.
Further tombola ticket sales are also planned for the Hildreds Centre on February 23 and April 13.
Sarah said: “I think it’s brilliant that Hannah is doing all of this for such a worthy cause.
“And she has always loved travel so this is a great opportunity for her and we hope the local people help her raise the funds she needs,” Sarah continued. To donate visit https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/hannahbrown2 or attend one of the sales.
