Paul plans epic trek across Nepal – but he needs your help to get there

Paul Kelly is hoping to raise £3,000 for Sue Ryder by trekking the Himalayas this autumn Greyfriars

AN EPIC trek across Nepal will be help raise funds for a Nettlebed charity.

Paul Kelly, who is verger of Greyfriars Church in central Reading, is preparing for a gentle stroll across the Himalayas – some of the most rugged terrain on the planet.

He is hoping to raise £3,000 for Sue Ryder charity, which assists in the care of people with incurable illnesses while also giving their families a wide range of practical help. The life-changing trek will see him walk four eight-hour days and two four-hour days.

Paul said: “I have registered to take part in a tough and challenging trek in Nepal to raise funds for Sue Ryder. I am sure the experience will test my endurance but also give me an opportunity to see more of this amazing world we live in.”

The trek will take place in October and November, but he needs to raise his target by the end of the summer.

“My goal is to raise £3,000 by August so I would appreciate your support,” he said. “You can give a donation on my page at: or perhaps a fundraiser event at your workplace or church (collection buckets available on request).

“It would be fantastic to know you’re alongside in this mountainous task, so that you can play your part.”
