Nicole Schordan will travel to the base camp as part of an 18 day high altitude trek to Kalapathar.

The journey will see her forced to cross numerous rivers on the gruelling trek.

But despite the difficulties, Nicole insists the challenge will be a worthwhile one.

“Everyone has their own Everest to climb,” she said. “People encounter great challenges every day – some of these are chosen and others not. Life has a way of pulling us onto paths we never thought we’d find ourselves.

“My Everest base camp trip is a great personal challenge, but it doesn’t compare to the tough times many people experience when going through depression or mental illness.”

Nicole hopes to complete the trek to raise money for MIND.

“I want to be part of helping those to reach the summit of their personal Everest and raise a minimum of £4,000 for the charity in order to help them continue to support those in need.

“I believe that nobody should have to face such situations with mental health alone. Organisations such as MIND are vitally important when it comes to listening, offering support and giving advice.”

People can donate to Nicole’s charity trek via her online fundraising page.
