Atlantic sailing challenge to Everest base camp

School Counsellor Jenny Yeates shares why she decided to pack her bags and set off on two demanding expeditions:

“In the last 6 months I’ve had the opportunity to take on two big challenges in memory of my daughter, Lucy-Anne – sailing across the Atlantic, then trekking to Everest Base Camp.

“These trips couldn’t have been more different – one at sea level and the other ‘on top of the world’, however through them I hoped to connect with Lucy-Anne’s courage and confinement.

“After having a double lung/liver transplant she spent 5 months in hospital. During this time, she pushed incredibly hard to get her new lungs working - sadly, this didn’t happen, she died last February. 

“I can recommend these experiences to anyone who seek solace and headspace.”

A huge well done to Jenny for her inspirational story.
