Chris Jackson is finally on his way to Katmandu in Nepal following weeks of training with support from The Altitude Centre. We spoke to him just before he left and he was so grateful for all the kind donations from the village. At last count this morning he had raised just over £3,500 and he's continuing to fundraise for cancer research here:

We are hoping to receive updates from him over the coming few days and will share as much of his story as we can. Good luck Chris!
