Delegates to the British Association of Public Community Safety Officials’ (BAPCO) annual conference are being urged to sign-up for the challenge of a life-time – to stand in the shadow of the highest point on earth.
Embrace Child Victims of Crime, BAPCO’s charity partner, has secured exclusive places to trek Everest Base Camp in November 2019 and is on the look-out for hardy fund-raisers or corporate supporters to take part.
The 21-day trip takes in the majestic Himalayan mountains and culture with the highlight an ascent of Kala Patar on Mount Pumori, widely recognised as one of the best vantage point for views of Everest.
Members can find out more by visiting Embrace at stand J10 at the Ricoh Arena throughout the conference on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 March.
Embrace Chief Executive Anne Campbell, a veteran of two Himalayan trekking adventures, said: “I know trekking Everest Base Camp will be a life-enhancing experience like no other. If you yearn for adventure, this charity challenge is one for you.
“Equally, we’re keen to speak to corporate sponsors who can match-fund their employee’s efforts or contribute to the adventure in other ways.”
The charity challenge takes place between 2 and 21 November and participants will need to have a good level of fitness to take part.
The cost is £2,850 with a minimum fund-raising target of £2,500, or an all-in price of £3,850 for participants registering without corporate support. A £250 registration fee applies.
