Signs Express (Southampton) employee Ben Else and his friends will be making their way to the top of Mount Everest to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity.
The Brain Tumour Charity (formerly Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust) is the UK’s largest dedicated brain tumour charity helping to fund scientific and clinical research into brain tumours through various fundraising activities. A close friend of Ben Else recently passed away due to a brain tumour and so the opportunity to help fund research into the disease holds a personal significance.
Ben and his friends will be walking for a month during September of this year from Jiri to the base camp, which is 17,598 ft above sea level. The walk will see the group ascend over 41,000 ft and descending around 30,000 ft.

Signs Express would like to take this opportunity to wish Ben and all other members of the trek the very best of luck.
