Unfit Wes challenges himself to reach Everest basecamp for children's hospice.

Further Strategist Wes Penrose recently announced his intention to trek to Everest Basecamp in March of next year.
Once we’d picked ourselves off the floor we discovered that laid-back Wes, who was hardly the most complete or energetic of athletes, was challenging himself to help raise money for one of the region’s most deserving of charities – EACH (East Anglian Children's Hospices).
Since the announcement we have to say Wes has been a changed man, hiking into work daily, instead of taking the bus ; embarking on training walks and even cutting down on his alcohol intake (well, slightly!)
As you’d expect, the Everest trip is extremely expensive, so Wes is looking for as many pledges of support and donations as possible to try and reach his financial target. In conjunction with two friends who are also making the trip, he has also arranged a Charity Ball Fundraiser at Norwich’s Sprowston Manor Hotel on Saturday 12th November.
To find out more about Wes and his adventure, or to purchase Ball tickets (price £40 each) please visit the expedition website www.3unfitguysclimbahill.co.uk
Alternatively, if you feel like making a donation, you can sponsor Wes at http://www.justgiving.com/wesupahill
Any support you can give would be really appreciated. Good luck, Wes.
