Anna Weston scaling the heights of Everest.

Anna Weston, an Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change Masters student at Swansea University, and her peers are raising money to support the exceptional work the Marie Curie charity does for end-of-life care in the UK.

They are taking on the challenge of hiking the distance to the Everest Base Camp this summer, a height of 5545 metres above sea level. Walking up Constitution Hill can often feel like trekking up Everest, but this equates to around 7 hours of hiking each day through the Himalayas!

Sustainability and protecting the environment is close to Anna’s heart, echoed in her attraction to this particular challenge. It is a green trip, whereby they will be working with the organisation ‘WeForest' planting trees to offset their resultant carbon emissions from the trip. In addition to this, the Everest region is in fact a plastic-free zone inspiring Anna to go on to organise covid-friendly beach cleans, in addition to sponsored runs, Pen-y-Fan practice treks and raffle competitions in the near future. Be sure to follow her fundraising campaign so you don’t miss out.

Whilst Anna has made significant progress towards her £2800 fundraising target so far, let’s show our support and donate a few £ to raise money for such a worthy charity and incredible challenge Anna and the team are faced with later this year. Marie Curie provides end of life care to over 400,000 patients in the UK, and have continued to put themselves at risk during the pandemic prioritising their patients’ quality of life. Your support to Anna and her team will help her reach her target and help Marie Curie continue their phenomenal work.
