Mountain Kingdoms' baking efforts raise £220 for charity

Mountain Kingdoms' baking efforts raise £220 for charity

Last week the team at Mountain Kingdoms helped raised a tasty sum of £220 for charity.

On 18th February 2016, 220 runners took part in an off-road race in the Forest of Dean, organised by Rogueruns. Mountain Kingdoms was given the task of baking enough cakes to feed all the hungry runners at the end of the race, and for every runner who took part Rogueruns donated £1 to Mountain Kingdoms for their bakes. The £220 raised will be donated by Mountain Kingdoms to Nepali Children's Trust who support the Newlife Centre orphanage in Nepal.

Donation in memory of Alan Gallop

Donation in memory of Alan Gallop

An impressive £1,012 was recently raised by friends and family of Alan Gallop on the very sad occasion of his funeral. Alan had previously trekked in the Annapurnas in Nepal so it seemed fitting that the money should be donated, in his memory, to help rebuild a country he so enjoyed visiting. This is one of Alan's photos from his trek to Annapurna Sanctuary.

Responsible Travel - Our response to the challenges of 2015

Responsible Travel - Our response to the challenges of 2015

There was no bigger challenge in 2015 then the terrible damage wrought by the earthquake in Nepal last April. Trying to provide practical help and support to the people of Nepal became the overriding focus of our Responsible Travel activities and fundraising throughout the year. By the end of 2015, our incredibly generous clients, staff and friends had raised over £40,000 which we distributed between several charities who have been doing amazing work rebuilding the homes and lives of the people of Nepal. Helping them to continue this immensely valuable work will be our driving force in 2016.

Away from the tragedy of the earthquake, we have continued to provide training courses for our Nepalese guides and trek crew and we've also raised funds to plant trees in Peru and to expand the important work of the Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service in Ethiopia. None of which would have been possible without the overwhelming generosity of our clients. A huge thank you from everyone at Mountain Kingdoms.

Here's a look back at our Responsible Travel year.
