This is just a very quick note to say Thank You to everyone who came to my Manaslu presentation and who supported the solar light project in the region.
More than 100 people attended the event, which was hosted by Sport Conrad in Garmisch-Part., and it was great to see that so many of you took their time to come on a Manaslu trip with me – even though I am sure Christmas is keeping everyone on their toes.
In total, 97 tickets at 5 Euro each were sold – all of which is going towards the project. On top of these 500 Euro, Sport Conrad put in another 5 Euro per ticket sold, which means that thanks to you and Sport Conrad, we have raised 1,000 Euro for the people in need in the Manaslu region.
This is great news and I am very happy that I was able to find a project that I think is worthwhile as I am a bit skeptical about general developing programmes all over the world. However, this small project is run by a friend of mine, who has been trekking and climbing in Nepal for many years. Val Pitkethly has a lot of passion and enthusiasm for the Himalaya and its people and I truly know that all the money will go directly to the project.
I would also like to thank you for your enthusiasm and your support during my presentation. You made me feel comfortable and at ease and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
Thank you once again!
