WALKING THE HIMALAYAS

 

In aid of The AMECA Trust, explorer Levison Wood, will be giving an illustrated talk on his latest expedition, as he follows up his 2014 trek along the entire length of the Nile by attempting to walk the entire length of the Himalayas.


Please join us at St John's School, Leatherhead, Surrey on Friday 15th January 2016, 7.30 p.m. for what promises to be a great evening fundraising event. Following Lev's talk, there will be a reception during which Lev will be signing copies of Walking the Himalayas and Sunday Times bestseller, Walking the Nile.

Introduction by Professor Chris Lavy OBE, MD, MCh, FRCS. Professor of Tropical Surgery at Oxford and Honorary Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. Chris is committed to surgical training and research in sub-Saharan Africa and was awarded an OBE by the Queen in 2007 for services to international orthopaedics.


AMECA is delighted to have been chosen by St John's pupils in Churchill House as their nominated charity. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the staff and pupils for their enthusiasm and support for the charity.
 
Currently being screened by Channel 4 Walking the Himalayas sees Levison push himself to his physical limits as he is forced through remote, punishing terrain and altitudes above 5000m where he suffers from a debilitating lack of oxygen. As well as battling natural obstacles, he has to tread carefully through one of the most fought over areas of the world - walking through Afghanistan, crossing the Line of Control between Pakistan and India, navigating the disputed territory of Kashmir and making his way through Nepal as it recovers and tries to rebuild itself after the recent earthquakes.
WALKING THE HIMALAYAS is published in hardcover by Hodder & Stoughton



Lev became a Patron of AMECA in November 2014.
A great supporter of the charity, Lev was a longstanding friend and Army colleague of Alex Coutselos, in whose memory the charity was founded.
It is fitting that this event will be held at St John's School, Leatherhead, Surrey. Many of you will be aware that this was Alex's former school.
Alex would be so very proud.
