EVEREST - The Countdown has begun!

Mt Everest. The World’s highest mountain and the peak of human achievement! Penny Appeal has enlisted 34 brave volunteers for one of the greatest challenges on Earth – trekking to the Everest Base Camp. All in aid of the Rohingya Emergency

After undertaking increasingly arduous training walks and checking all our kit, we’ll be flying out to Kathmandu on 11th December


Our Objective

Our aim is to raise at least £250,000 which will go directly to Penny Appeal’s Rohingya Emergency Appeal to help hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees in Balukhall refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. The camp is home to 500,000 displaced refugees who desperately need food, water, shelter and medical care to survive.

Which is why you can help!
