40th Anniversary

Climbing Everest in the Alps

In February 2018, a brave team from BMS made up of Chris Ritchie, Nick Trowbridge, Hugo Seccombe and Brian Gomes, took on arguably one of its biggest fundraising events to date - the Everest in the Alps challenge, in aid of the Brain Tumour Charity.

This epic expedition took place over four days and saw them complete 8,900m of climbing on skis, facing life-threatening temperatures of -30ºC, blizzards and at times, zero visibility.

Thanks to their remarkable efforts and a number of other fundraising initiatives, BMS raised over £160k for the charity.
