Help Janet Pickett & Addenbrooke’s Hospital
Posted by Dave
My friend and Elbrus teammate Janet Pickett is about to make a push to the top of the world to raise money for the maternity and children’s’ services at Addenbrooke’s hospital (see her note below). Let’s lend Janet a hand and cheer her on in this noble pursuit. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. GO JANET!
MOUNT EVEREST SUMMIT ATTEMPT & ADDENBROOKE’S CHARITIES
As you may be aware, I am attempting to reach the summit of Mount Everest
(29,050 feet) in May of this year and in doing so raising money for both
maternity and children’s services at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. I have been
resident at Everest base camp on the south (Nepal) side since the beginning
of April and have climbed progressively higher on the mountain. Tomorrow, my
summit attempt will begin in earnest – base camp and upwards to camps 1-4
and then the long and potentially very cold summit day.
Thanks to the generosity of many of you, fundraising for maternity and
children’s services is already well underway. For those of you who are
planning to donate, but haven’t yet donations can be easily made online at
Any amount is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use. The climb
itself can be followed at www.jagged-globe.co.uk/news.
With thanks and best wishes Janet
