We run a selected number of fundraising events that secure the maximum earnings for the charity. This can range from car washes through to Nepal based events where we take small groups of enthusiastic Trekkers out to Nepal to experience the country and see and work directly on our projects.
Every year we run a Nepal based event in October, including a trek to Everest Base Camp to see the highest point on earth at close quarters, and “Build and Trek” – an opportunity to help fund classrooms and other school facilities and then spend a fortnight actually working on the school build and taking part in a short trek to see some of the highest mountains in the world. We run these events every year and make no bones about our intent to capitalise on sponsorship to raise funds. All events are self-funded by participants, so every penny raised through sponsorship goes direct to the project.
Build and Trek 2024
Once again we will be taking a strong team to Nepal and specifically to Dhangadi, the chosen site for our latest Vocational Centre (VC). Along with the successful Everest Base Camp 2022 expedition, they will be raising funds for the project, every penny of which will be matched by St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation for their own support to worthy causes in the UK.
The team will work hard on the building site in Dhangadi for five days, making a significant contribution to the project. They will work alongside the Nepali team clearing the site, digging foundations, shifting bricks and other materials, and doing some of the hard-labour jobs, so the skilled Nepali team don’t waste any time.
After that they will enjoy (or endure!) a trek in the Annapurna Region of Nepal and see the dawn over two of the 14 highest peaks in the world – Annapurna 1 and Dhaulagiri.
Each team member is expected to raise a minimum of £5,000 in donations and they each pay all their own flights, insurance and expenses.
