Walsall Academy – Nepal Everest Base Camp 2017
GM Design Solutions, A close friend of ours, contacted us regarding his youngest son who is off to Nepal for a 3 week expedition to Everest Base Camp. He was seeking sponsorship to help raise £4500 to cover the cost of the trip and some of his equipment. Organised by Walsall Academy, the trip aims to gain new experiences and challenges they have to tackle and overcome. A journey like this, for most of us, is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so naturally, we were happy to help.
