A woman will embark on a trek to Everest Base Camp to help raise cash for a mountain rescue team.
Catrin Patterson will also climb the nearby peak of Kala Patthar, from which she hopes to view the summit of Everest, which cannot be seen from the camp.
She is looking for sponsors for the event, with money going to Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team, which covers part of Snowdonia.
The team is fundraising for a new rescue centre at Porthmadog.
Ms Patterson is due to fly out to Lukla in early November, then trek for 10 days to reach Everest Base Camp. After this, she plans to walk up to the 5,647m summit of Kala Patthar before returning to Lukla.
Aberglaslyn MRT team leader Dion Jones said: “We as a team cannot thank Catrin and those who have already donated enough for their generosity and support.
“The team is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions, and we truly rely on donations such as this
“It costs more than £6,000 a year to keep the team in operation, and we are desperately in need of funds to maintain this essential service and complete the rescue centre project. We hope that with the help of Catrin and the community this can become a reality.”
The team responds to more than 70 callouts a year, and is made up of 30 volunteers. It covers an area of more than 750sq km in Snowdonia, including the Nantlle Ridge, Moel Hebog, Tremadog cliffs, Cnicht and the Moelwyn Range.
Ms Patterson’s challenge has so far raised more than £1,500. Donations can be made via her charity page.
