Leo Houlding, Vertical Journeys

Illustrated talk by world-class climber Leo Houlding in aid of Himalayan Trust UK, with Avalanche Appeal for lost Sherpas.

Illustrated talk by world-class luminary climber and TV presenter Leo Houlding on his ascent of Everest (dressed in 1920s attire of legendary Sandy Irvine) and his ascent of the terrifyingly vertiginous Ulvetanna in Antarctica, in aid of the Himalayan Trust UK which supports mountain communities and especially children in the remotest corners of Nepal. The lecture is named The Sir Edmund Hillary Memorial Lecture in memory of the great man who started the charity. In light of the recent tragedy on Everest in which 16 Sherpas were killed, all proceeds from a raffle and auction of Everest memorabilia will be donated to the bereaved families of the lost Sherpas to cover living expenses and secure an education for their children. Always a friendly, warm and entertaining evening, all are welcome.
