Email sent re: tickets
There are many raffle tickets available. Please buy a strip or two.
The George Band Everest book is in beautiful condition and a first edition. Signed by ten talented mountaineers. See photos.
raffle tickets still available- please buy some?
Five pounds has appeared in my bank. If it’s for raffle tickets I don’t know who it’s from. I can’t allocate five tickets without knowing.
Tell me please “M and M“
Thank you again to all who have bought tickets. As a little incentive/ gift I’m giving away a chalk ball and a rock brush to the person whose ticket number is 400. Please keep buying to get there.
I was lucky enough to go to Nepal in 2019. I can't imagine how the country is managing this year without its main source of income.
Well done Linda for your efforts. Very happy to support.
Ps the prizes look great
Thank you. I went last Year too. I’m in regular contact with David Durkan who runs Mountain People. They build schools up and shelters, and provide food under their ‘buy a bag of rice’ scheme and also blankets. He told me that the Nepali are starving- it’s heartbreaking.
Update - the person who bought the number 400 raffle ticket is not a climber. Therefore the chalk ball and brush on offer to the buyer of ticket number 400 has now been ‘moved’ to the buyer of tkt no 500. Please keep buying raffle tickets to win this or one of the other prizes?
I got a few rows of tickets and randomly won a chalk bag and brush! 😀

I thought it was due to be drawn 1 December? Should I chuck my tickets away?
Noooo it was a ‘tempter’ prize for whoever was at tkt no 400. He was the closest ‘climber’ to 400 so I posted the gift.
it will be drawn on the first of December.
so plenty of time to buy more tickets folks- please.
Adding, for free, as an extra raffle prize my signed Cerro Torre postcard - signed by Pete Crew, Martin Boysen, Mick Burke and Dougal Haston.
Dougal HASTON!! One of the two first British climbers to summit Everest in 1975. This signed card is being sold on eBay for over £50, sometimes much more. ( see photo)
Please buy some raffle tickets and be in with a chance of winning? And thanks to all who have bought already
You got a link for the Mountain People charity?
Thanks when I googled it, it came up with a few different charities.
I’m friends with David Durkan who runs mountain people. Beni is his wife. If I can be of any further help please email me?
There is still plenty of time to buy tickets. A fivers worth gives you 5 chances to win prizes worth over £50 each. The draw will not be made until the first of December. Please email me for bank details. Thanks. Linda 🙏
My unicef worker friend is presently in Nepal. He says it’s dire over there, no work and therefore no income. There are people still displaced by the 2015 earthquake who cannot get given food as they have no address. The charity workers are taking rice to them away from the police eyes.
I took this photo last year of a house obliterated by that earthquake- I’ve only just noticed the vulture on it........
Photo of the prizes to date. Also offering a home made cake of choice and chocolate brownies. Double chocolate!!

For most runners, restricted to local exercise, proper hills might currently be off limits; so get some vicarious inspiration from these running films - then get training, in preparation for the lifting of travel restrictions. Here's to a...
