Sponsored Severn Bridge Half Marathon

Sponsored Severn Bridge Half Marathon

Mountain Kingdoms' Responsible Tourism Mananger, Niki Morgan, will be running the Severn Bridge Half Marathon this August to raise much needed funds for one of our chosen charities in Nepal. Niki will also be doing a sponsored litter pick.

If you would like to sponsor Niki's race/litterpick, then please make a donation on her Just Giving page.

SHIVA charity provides education for some of the poorest children in Nepal. Niki's donations will be allocated to the Ginette Harrison School near Kathmandu. The school was named after one of the world's most famous 20th century female climbers. The original school building had to be vacated, and the school was moved to old temporary buildings, while a new school was constructed. Now the work is completed, the children have much more space and equipment, and a good place to learn. To date Mountain Kingdoms has raised over £15,500 for SHIVA, through a host of fundraising activities and client donations. The next task is to improve the quality of resources in the school and to give the teachers extra teacher training.

The Severn Bridge Half Marathon includes running over the closed 'old' Severn Bridge, an iconic landmark. The bridge is part of the M48 motorway, and this race will give the opportunity to run across the bridge for the first time since the bridge was opened in 1966. Mountain Kingdoms is pleased to be supporting this unique event.

Not only is Niki our Responsible Tourism Manager, she is also an Operations Manager for the company, which involves organising and testing out many of our treks and trekking peaks around the world.

December competition winner

Our final winner for 2022 is Chris Holland with this superb photo of Ama Dablam in the Everest region of Nepal. Not only has Chris captured the beauty of this magnificent mountain but the stupa in the foreground (with its slightly cheeky expression) adds real interest and character as well as a sense of symmetry and scale between the man made and natural worlds. Many congratulations to Chris who wins our last Water-to-Go bottle of the year.
