A 25-strong team from St. James’s Place Wealth Management will be trekking to Everest Base Camp in early April, raising funds for their Company Foundation, which has so far made grants in excess of £20 million over the last 20 years.
As part of the fund-raising efforts, an Aberdeenshire-based artist, Peter Goodfellow, was commissioned to paint two paintings of Everest, and from these 75 limited edition prints have been signed by Doug Scott, Sir Chris Bonington, David Hempleman-Adams, Kenton Cool and Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
The company is also staging an event at Blenheim Palace in June at which some prints will be auctioned and Sir Ran Fiennes is main speaker. Kenton Cool, who is leading the trek, and climb on Everest itself with team-member Roger Owen, will also be at the dinner.
