WHEN it comes to raising money for charity, Annie Hutson-Redfearn goes straight to the top.
Annie, a supervisor in the Call Management Bureau at Cheshire Constabulary’s HQ, Winsford, is heading for the Himalayas in the Ultimate Everest Trek.
She’ll spend most of the 21-day trek at altitudes of up to 19,000 ft.
The challenge involves navigating the Kala Patar mountain and the Cho La pass, seeing the Khumbu Glacier, camping by the Gokyo lakes and visiting the Everest Base Camp.
Annie hopes to raise £2,000 in sponsorship for the Rossendale Trust, which provides facilities for adults with special needs at Sutton, near Macclesfield.
She said: “I did a previous mountain trek in Peru, raising money for the cerebral palsy charity. This time I decided to help the Trust. My manager’s daughter uses the Oakwood project, which is part of the Rossendale Trust. They do tremendous work, so it seemed a good idea to help.”
