Climb for Nepal raises over £1500

Last Saturday many local children enjoyed the climbing wall on Milford on Sea Village green, and the 'Climb for Nepal' event raised well over £1500 with sponsorships still coming in.

The money raised will go towards a new library for Kushadevi School which is Milford’s sister school in Nepal.

Around 60 young climbers from Milford on Sea took part, and they collectively managed well over the height of Ben Nevis - a whopping 1785 metres!

Sister events had 140 climbing mount Nagi in Nepal, and PHASE Nepal’s team had 150 climbers on Mount Snowdon.

There were live updates from both of the other climbs, although Snowdon’s signal proved a little tricky, but luckily mount Nagi has a mobile phone mast on the very top!

There is now talk of going for the equivalent of Everest next year which will be a 24 hour climb on the Village Green!

The whole event was put together by a group of sterling workers all aged under 11 (under the guidence of Joey Owen) - this was a big achievement for them, as it not always easy to pull these things off and they did it - so big shout out to them, everyone deserves to be very proud.
