"I have been cycling all my life and have done some very big challenges, but I think this one will be the hardest yet..."

Helen is part of the team at Wycombe Homeless Connection but when she’s not helping people in housing crisis, she’s on her bike. Now, she’s combining the two and aiming to raise £1,000.

"On the 25th July I will be attempting a virtual Everest climb. I expect the 210km and 8850m of ascent to take 15 hours!

"I know first-hand how hard our team works to help vulnerable people sleeping on the streets, and those who are at risk of losing their home. It has been a very tough few months with the coronavirus pandemic and we have worked tirelessly to get everyone accommodated. This has come at a cost to us as a charity so please,do sponsor me as I attempt this epic climb."

We’ll keep you updated on her training and on the day we’ll be following her on our social media - she is going to need all the encouragement she can get.
