Climbing Everest in a good cause
Brackla Labour councillor, John Spanswick last Friday left Bridgend to embark on his charity trek to the base camp at Mount Everest and the adjacent peak of Kalar Patar at a height of 5,560m.
He tells me that he expects to raise in the region of £4,000 for Cancer Research and the Stroke Association. More information on his adventure can be found at www.cobwebs.uk.net/everesttrek where you can also make a donation to John’s fundraising campaign.
The photo above was taken at the trek launch at the Cancer Research Shop in Bridgend. Pictured from left to right : myself, Cat Edger (shop manager), Nia Chadwick (Area Fundraiser, Cancer Research), Cllr John Spanswick.
