Freemasons Conquer Everest's Challenges for Charity Expedition

Freemasons Overcome Everest's Challenges to Reach Base Camp in Charity Expedition

Two prominent members of the Masonic community, Jez Hyland and Rob Wright, faced extreme challenges as they embarked on a charity expedition to the Mount Everest Base Camp.

The epic journey, begun amidst two inches of snow and bone-chilling temperatures of -11°C, aimed to raise funds for the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF), as part of Lincolnshire Masons' efforts to achieve the ambitious goal of £2.25 million by 2025.

The trek commenced with a daring landing at Lukla airport, deemed one of the world's most dangerous. Overcoming imminent dangers, Jez and Rob tackled steep climbs and precarious bridges while acclimating to the high altitudes.

Despite the hardships, the duo remained resilient, pressing on through Namche Bazaar and Tenbouche, marveling at the stunning landscapes around them.

The ultimate challenge was to reach the renowned Kalapathar, an observation point offering unparalleled views of the majestic Everest at sunrise.

Facing treacherous conditions and steep inclines, they persisted, driven by their unwavering commitment to the cause.

Their triumphant ascent, culminating in the emotional sight of the sunrise over Everest, was a testament to their perseverance and dedication. In addition to raising vital funds for charity, their achievement exemplified the indomitable spirit of Freemasonry.

Jez and Rob expressed heartfelt gratitude to all who supported their endeavor. Their remarkable achievement serves as a source of inspiration, demonstrating the principles of charity and solidarity upheld by the Masonic community.
