Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Well, I've done some crazy things in my time, but this must rate as my craziest !! .. I'm returning to the Everest region in Nepal to repeat my attempt to climb Gokyo Ri at 5357mtrs,my previous attempt in 2007 failed due to problems with altitude. I have a strong personal reason for wanting to return to this particular part of Nepal and I intend to explain this & descibe my experience at an illustrated talk on my return (I bet you can't wait !! haha).

Why am I asking you to support St Martins Housing Trust?

Two reasons!:

1. I am writing this in January while there is snow on the ground. There is never a good time to be homeless but especially not in conditions such as these. The issues and needs surrounding homelessness are often very complex. St Martins offers help and hope to those less fortunate than ourselves, in the form of direct access accommodation, residential care, support and development to enable everyone to achieve their full potential and a greater level of independence. (Things most of us take for granted)

2. St Martins won't know this, but they’ve helped me! Briefly:- last year I went through a personally ‘testing’ time. During this time I volunteered my services to St Martins, after a while they asked me to train to become a volunteer Mentor within their special project known as LEAP, Learning,Employment,Accomodation project. This training helped me to overcome and resolve some of my own issues! LEAP is a personal development programme for individuals experiencing disadvantages and inequalities in housing and employment.

Basically I feel we all help each other.
