Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
A massive well done to 14 adventurous MORE TH>N employees who trekked the Annapurna region of Nepal to raise money for Have a Heart.
The team started their journey in Kathmandu where they spent a day or two acclimatising and then it was off to the lakeside town of Pokhara, where the trek began. On the first morning they helped out in a Tibetan Children’s orphanage, before heading off to the first stop of the trek - the river side camp at Sayauli Bazaar. Other stops along the way included Kimche, Ghandruk, Landruk, Tolka and Potana. The weary trekkers completed their journey back in Pokhara before heading back to Kathmandu for a bit of R & R!
The team have raised over £11,000 so far and hope to raise a total of £14,000 for Have a Heart. Money raised from this trek will support Children's Hospices UK's work providing care and support to seriously ill children and their families in their own homes.
