A Journey for a Cause

Welcome to our blog, where we're excited to share an incredible opportunity that goes beyond the ordinary and promises to make a lasting impact in our local community.

The Adventure

This coming Autumn, our team comprising myself, Emma-Jayne, and our inspiring client, Sam, who bravely faces Alzheimer's, will be embarking on the Everest Base Camp Trek on the Nepalese side (south side). Renowned as one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas, this journey demands physical endurance, mental resilience, and unwavering determination.

Our three-week expedition, set to kick off on the 14th of October, is not just a personal challenge but a symbolic representation of overcoming obstacles—something individuals like Sam do every day.

The Cause

Our mission is two-fold: to conquer the Everest Base Camp and to raise over £30,000 for a cause close to our hearts. All funds collected will stay within our community and be donated to Age UK Hythe, Lyminge, and Ashford. These funds are vital for supporting those living with Dementia. Currently, our Lyminge hub hosts the only bespoke (secure) Dementia unit in the area, and we aim to expand our capacity to offer more individuals the opportunity to attend our facility.

How You Can Help

We are reaching out to local businesses for support. Your collaboration can take the form of sponsorship or a donation. In return, we offer various contribution packages, providing exposure for your brand/business on our social media platforms, newsletters, and community hubs. Imagine the impact of making Age UK Hythe, Lyminge, and Ashford your charity of the year.
