In November, Chris Leyshon and Matthew Vance-Daniel are trekking to Everest Base Camp for two Welsh charities. The pair will be taking on the challenge for Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales supporting men with benign prostate disease and prostate cancer and the Emyr Owen branch of Latch, the Welsh Children’s cancer charity.

Both charities receive no government funding and rely on the generosity of their amazing fundraisers. Prostate Cymru supports men in Wales with prostate disease and prostate cancer through education, awareness, medical training and research. Funds raised through this challenge will help the charity’s recent and upcoming projects including prostate health assessments, a specialist nurse, a helpline and chatbot assistance on the website. The Emyr Owen branch of Latch supports children who are receiving treatment for cancer at the Children’s Hospital for Wales and their families. Money raised can help fund projects including refurbishing the Latch ward of the Children’s Hospital for Wales for kids who are undergoing cancer treatment and covering the cost for two caravans, known as Emyr’s Karavans 4 the Kidz, so that children can go on holidays.

To help raise money, Chris and Matthew have created a summit flag which they will display at key points throughout their Everest Base Camp trek and future mountain climbing events. There are different sponsorship categories on the flag which companies and individuals can fill with a logo or good luck message. Each sponsor will receive a photo of the duo at the summits with the flag including their logo or message. For more information about the summit flag please contact Chris Leyshon on 07931 081381.

Chris and Matthew are fundraising on VirginMoneyGiving.
