This October, Rap Interiors Commercial Director Martyn Pilcher is trekking the Annapurna region of Nepal to raise money for child bereavement charity Abigail’s Footsteps. Organised by Family Business Place, the trip will see Martyn join 11 other trekkers in a bid to reach a fundraising target of £3000.

Martyn and co will journey through some of the world’s tallest mountains and diverse climatic zones, from tropical to freezing alpine peaks. They will start and finish their journey in Kathmandu, which is famed for its stunning temples, city squares and vibrant markets.

The team will be guided by Himalayan mountaineering experts, known as “Sherpas”. The Sherpas will give support across the challenging trails of Annapurna, which holds in store incredible towering peaks and dramatic valleys. Throughout this section of the trek, the team will also enjoy the fantastic hospitality of the Nepalese mountain people.

Abigail’s Footsteps is a baby loss charity that provides support and counselling for bereaved parents and families. It also provides specialist bereavement training for midwives and healthcare professionals. If the £3000 target is met, Abigail’s Footsteps can fund specialist baby counselling sessions for 20 families.

Martyn comments: “I am delighted to be joining the other trekkers for this exciting venture. As a father myself, I was more than happy to get involved to support Abigail’s Footsteps. We are determined to reach the £3000 target to help the charity continue its incredible work. Even though the trek will be a challenge, it will be worth it to see the jaw-dropping sights and raise money for a just cause. I can’t wait to get going!”

The team will be setting off on 16th October – Martyn’s birthday. To keep up to date with their progress, make sure you keep an eye on Rap Interiors’ and Family Business Place’s social media channels. The two companies will be documenting the entire trip with posts and videos to gain as much exposure for the campaign as possible. If you want to donate now, click here to visit the Just Giving page.
