Freeman Retirement Living Helps to Raise Funds for Nepal

Freeman Retirement Living are helping to raise funds for those affect by the Nepal Earthquake after recently sponsoring A Guinness World Record attempt of hosting the Highest Dinner Party. 

A British expedition team had set out this month to climb Mt Everest by the North Ridge where they would have attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the Highest formal black tie Dinner Party.

Unfortunately, half way through the expedition the devasting earthquake hit Nepal. We were relieved to hear that all the members of the team, led by Neil Laughton, a former Royal Commando and SAS Officer, are fine and well, however they have had to abandon their World Record attempt. 

Whilst it is disappointing not to achieve what they set out to do, the main aim of the expedition was to raise as much money for Community Action Nepal ( a UK based charity founded by Doug Scott CBE, the first British climber of Mt Everest. The charity supports the mountain people of Nepal and will 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 in these difficult times. 

Luke Freeman, Joint Chief Executive of MF Freeman, said “Our thoughts are with all the people in Nepal. We are relieved to report that the World’s Highest Dinner Party team are all safe and well. Whilst they have had to abandon their World Record attempt they are committed to raising as much money for their charity Community Action Nepal, which goes directly to helping and supporting the local Nepalese people. Now, more than ever, they need our support and every penny we can raise will benefit those affect by this tragedy.”
