A PARTNER from one of Bolton’s biggest law firms is set to take on one of the most physical challenges in the world to raise money for Bolton Hospice where she is chairman.
Judith Bromley, partner in charge of the wills and probate department at Russell and Russell Solicitors, is heading to Nepal to complete a trek to Everest base camp.
Judith, and her fellow fundraiser Gabrielle MacDonald, will fly to Nepal to prepare for the 12 day trek on April 14.
Her mission is to raise funds to mark the 25th anniversary of Bolton Hospice, which has been providing free care for adults facing life-limiting illnesses since it opened its doors in 1992.
Starting her trek from the southern side of Everest, Judith will put her 12 months of training into practice to take on the epic 17,600 ft hike. From Kathmandu, she will take a short plane ride to Lukla to begin a two day walk to the village of Namche Bazaar where she will begin her altitude acclimatisation. From there, she will trek for another two days to reach Dingboche, stopping to acclimatise again before making a further two day hike which will take her to Everest base camp.
“I’ve walked for many years and have always enjoyed it, but there’s something about pushing yourself that really appeals to me”, said Judith. “I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Bolton Hospice in 2015, which was such an amazing adventure it gave me an appetite to look for other challenges to help raise money. The walk to Everest base camp is going to be an experience of a lifetime and to be able to do it whilst raising funds for the Hospice is a fantastic opportunity.”
