Freeman Retirement Living Sponsors World’s Highest Dinner Party

Freeman Retirement Living are sponsoring A Guinness World Record attempt of hosting the Highest Dinner Party. 

A British expedition have set out this month to climb Mt Everest by the North Ridge. En-route to the top, they will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Highest formal black tie Dinner Party

The expedition to the North Col of Mount Everest will reach an altitude measuring over 7,000 metres where the formal dinner will take place on, or around, 27 April. Led by Neil Laughton, a former Royal Commando and SAS Officer, who once took a young Bear Grylls to the summit, the party of eight includes 2 Star Michelin chef, Sat Bains, who will cook dinner, two summiteers and a professional photographer/cameraman.

The menu has been devised by Sat, who will accompany the team and cook the record breaking meal high on the mountain. In a symbolic gesture to thank the Sherpa community for its many sacrifices, the expedition climbers will serve the high altitude Sherpas to this delicious meal.

The current holder of the highest formal dinner party in the Guinness World Records is Henry Shelford who dined with friends at 6,800 metres on 3 May 2004 in Tibet. All proceeds raised from the Everest dinner party challenge will go to Community

Action Nepal (CAN) a UK based charity founded by Doug Scott CBE, the first British climber of Mt Everest, which supports the mountain people of Nepal (www.canepal.org.uk)

Luke Freeman, Joint Chief Executive of MF Freeman, said “We were very excited to be invited to sponsor this record breaking attempt. It is an extremely brave challenge for the expedition team to take on. The money raised will go to very deserving charity, Community Action Nepal, who help provide education, income and health facilities to local Nepalese families. With a fundraising target of £100,000, Freeman Retirement Living are committed to helping them raise as much as they possibly can.”
