PETRA AND PALS RAISE £65,000 FOR MARIE CURIE

From Petra McMillan in Lobuche, Nepal

Last night we realised we have raised almost £65,000 for the charity – more than enough to fund three full time nurses for a whole year.
We’ve battled sickness, diarrhoea, extreme sleep deprivation and exhaustion but every one of the 27 (aged 27 to 70 plus) who began this trek nine days ago are today ALL attempting Everest base camp despite only six of us having trekked at altitude before.
We’re packing up and heading off in minutes but, feeling a tad emotional today, I’d like to send you all huge thanks and love for all your support and hopefully next time I check in, I’ll be reporting a safe ascent and descent of the whole team. 💛🏔💪🏻
