The Foundation tackles Everest Base Camp

The Foundation tackles Everest Base Camp

On 12th-26th October this year, two members of Fine & Country will be bracing themselves for the toughest Foundation expedition yet. Volunteers have so far conquered marathons, 200 mile cycle rides and a number of other challenges in aid of the Foundation and homelessness, but none as treacherous as the trek to Everest Base Camp.

Sean Newman and Clint Nykamp from Fine & Country West Midlands will set off on their two week adventure in October, along with another five friends to form the group of seven. They will see some spectacular sites and test their endurance as they march their way to all the checkpoints. They will cross Dudh Kosi, the Milk River, and see the majestic sites of the Nuptse-Lhotse ridge. 


















When asked about his preparation and reasons behind the Base Camp trek, Sean Newman said, “I will need to do plenty of walking to train for this trip. I have bought an altitude training mask, but just need to find some mountains to try it.

“I love to travel and see different countries, cultures and environments. However, by far the most important reason for this expedition is because it will be changing people’s lives. To be able to raise money and build a home for a family will make the trip worthwhile and be very rewarding.”



















What is this all for?
The purpose of this challenge is to raise awareness and donations for the village of Thangpalkot1. A house costs only £1,600 to build. This would transform the lives of a family in desperate need. So far around 16 houses are built, but more than 50 are yet to be funded. Read the full story on the village and our progress

Following their descent, some members of the team will be travelling to Thangpalkot1 to see the progress made and meet the people they are supporting. 


Thank you for everyone who has supported this wonderful village so far!
