Gurka Welfare Trust – Climbathon – Mont Orgueil Castle, Gorey

His Excellency took part and joined the Appleby Team, who with the joint efforts of the Army Cadets, and the Crossfit Gym managed to climb Mont Orgueil Castle enough times to match the height of Mount Everest, which is 8,848 metres, just over 29,000 feet.

The money raised  will be used to build a school and medical centre in Nepal, which is still recovering from last year’s devastating earthquake.
