My LHS Story – Dave and Sue Thompson

A Nepalese restaurant, decorated with paintings of Sherpas crossing perilous rope bridges with Everest soaring magnificently in the background.  In the restaurant are four friends enjoying a rather delicious selection of curries and accompaniments. The topic of conversation idles towards the images on the wall and someone (Dave!) makes about what an experience it would be to visit Nepal and trek to Everest Base Camp and see Everest ‘with their own eyes’

Fast forward 12 months and here we (Dave,Chris,Tina and Sue) are, embarking on a trip of a lifetime to Nepal, Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar all in aid of the LHS Foundation.  The training and planning has taken over my life for 12 months and we also took part in Ben Nevis Rocks.   I have been able to blog occassionally,   so if you want to find out more about our trip, the route and get updates, have a look here

With very personal experiences of cancer in my family and with some of my most admired musical influences both affected and sadly lost through this terrible disease, including one of my musical heroes, Robin Gibb early this year, is why we support Love Hope Strength, the leading Rock and Roll Cancer Charity. Currently, the fundraising total stands at a massive £1100, if you wish to donate our fundraising page is here
