Fundraising

group of people learning biologyWe welcome your help with fundraising any amount. Money stretches a very long way in the Himalaya and even a modest donation can change a life.

Now that we have expanded our remit to cover both education and health in the Taplejung area, along with our response to the damage caused by the earthquakes, we have realised that we require a corresponding expansion in our budget.

We are very grateful to our supporters who have raised money for The Himalayan Trust through their independent fundraising events. Would you like to do something but you don’t know what? Why not get inspired by the stories on our Community of Supporters Wall.

Richard Everard, 69 years old, did the Manaslu Circuit – some 150 miles from Arughat on the east of Mount Manaslu to Syange on the west, reaching a height of 5135 metres at Larkya La Pass. Richard has never trekked in Nepal before and decided to do this trek to be able to raise money to support our health and education work in the Taplejung and Khumbu districts of Nepal.

To date he raised a staggering £2,000

 

 

 

 

The Water Project Trek 2017 team exceeded their target of raising £10K by a few thousand – amazing work, well done!!! Their trek saw them going to Kanchenjunga north and south base camps.  The money raised will mean that we can supply water to the last seven schools in our programme in the Taplejung region that didn’t have water yet and we can also provide water to the clinic in Lelep.

Thank you Robin, Chris & Bella, Keith, Nigel, Taff, Nik, John, Sarah, Alastair, Des, Mark, Dai, Rob, Roger, David and Celeste – we’re awaiting a group photo during your trek.

In 2013 we had two runners in the London Marathon raising money for The Himalayan Trust. Together they raised about £1,700 for us which was a brilliant achievement. If you are running a marathon or are looking for a benefactor for any other (sporting) sponsored event, please get in touch.
