“On June 30th, 2018 my beloved husband Paul perished in an avalanche on his attempt to summit Almapayo, one of the most beautiful mountains in the world.
Although his story was finished prematurely, Paul lived a hundred times the life of most people. He was the most loving husband, a deeply dedicated father, and very caring son. A successful entrepreneur, an inspiring boss, mentor and colleague, a rock to count on with an incredibly generous heart and virtuous modesty. He gave without any expectation of reciprocity.
Paul deeply touched and inspired the people he met. And so a group of his dear friends worked with utmost dedication to design this appeal in belief that it will be a fitting tribute to Paul's remarkable life.
Let’s contribute collectively to a tangible, living and lasting legacy of Paul, by donating in any way (large or small) as a way to keep us all connected with Paul. Please consider to GiftAid your donation (UK taxpayers only) to enable the Himalayan Trust UK to claim an additional 25% of your donation free of charge.”

Building a secondary school in Mamankhe, Nepal
Rebuild of Laxmi Secondary School in Mamankhe, a remote and very poor mountainous village in Northeastern Nepal in the foothills of Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world. The school currently serves 185 students and is very run down and underperforming. To make this school a success it will require a complete new build and a dedicated 10 year education improvement programme.
Our appeal target of £100K is to provide
- Complete newly built school with 6 classrooms
- New furniture and equipment
- Improved water and power supplies
- Teacher-training programme
- Scholarship programme
- Set-up of School Management Committee and PTA to strengthen parent involvement
- School sanitation and personal hygiene programme
- Small science and IT lab
- Child Club
To make this possible, we need £100K in the next 6 months for completion late 2019/early 2020
