Nepal Earthquake

April 27, 2015

To all of you who have been to Nepal and met our incredible team, we have now managed to speak with Kamal who has single-handedly led many of you to Everest Base Camp, and to Iswari who manages the ground operations team in-country. Both are safe after the earthquake, but the landlines have been down and we are yet to get any more detail.

Clearly this is a devastating earthquake and our thoughts and prayers go to all concerned in Nepal. We will be donating the bulk this year’s Charity Challenge Community Support Fund to the disaster relief effort.

If anyone would like to further support the UK’s efforts to help the people of Nepal, please visit one of the following websites:


Save the Children


As we have more details, we will keep you updated.

Many thanks.

    Isn’t it time Charity Challenge launched a trek (an appeal), for Nepal. If you do, put me down Especially if Kamal is leading it – He’s done 99 base camp treks, maybe the 100th could be special!!!
