EVEREST 13…. 5-6th August 2017

 

                                  EVEREST 13

On the weekend of 5-6th August 2017 at Western Gardens, a team of  Ryde Fire Station’s firefighters climbed a distance the equivalent of over 8 Mount Everest’s in 24 hours which was almost 72000 meters, just under 45 miles on a 10M high ladder.

We are one of the  main beneficiaries along with Ryde Fire Station Charity Fund, who support local families going through a difficult periord of time in their lives.

The event was well supported, before by the sponsors, and during the 24 hours by all the members of the public who cheered them on.

The Event raised approximately £5500 which will be  split between the two beneficiaries.
