SONIA Holman from the Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team is trekking up Everest this year to raise funds for the popular charity.

The trip will take 10 days to hike over 17,000 feet to base camp – and the training alone is mind-blowing.

Sonia said: “In the UK 125 people die every week by suicide. 

We need to talk about suicide more openly so we can understand it, break the stigma surrounding it and save more lives!!

So on the 24th of September 2024, we will be hiking to Mount Everest base camp in aid of Beachy head chaplaincy and MIND. 

Both charities are open 24/7 365 days a year to support those in need.”
