The challenge

On the 26th March 2022, a team of Bristol legends (including those scheduled to go in 2020 and 2021) travelled together to Nepal on a special expedition to support local charity PHASE Worldwide.

Led by PHASE’s trekking partners at Jagged Globe, the team completed the 20 day round trip to Everest Base Camp. This is one of the most famous treks in the world but it is not easy, with the team climbing to the height of 5550m!

Each team member fundraised in Bristol during the course of the campaign with the proceeds going to PHASE projects in Nepal. PHASE Worldwide has been working in remote areas of Nepal since 2005, supporting remote Himalayan communities by creating opportunities through health, education and agriculture projects.

The Tragic Loss of Jon Lewin

On 13th January 2019, one of the members of the 2019 Bristol to Base Camp team, Jon Lewin tragically lost his life while surfing in Sri Lanka. It is believed that he had a seizure while in the water. Working as a travel photographer, blogger and food writer, Jon was an incredibly inspirational man who was doing many exciting and creative things both personally and professionally. Jon had been so excited to take on this challenge and would have been a fantastic asset to the team when they completed their mission to reach Everest Base Camp. The 2019 team honoured his dream by finishing the challenge on his behalf and carried a favourite shirt of his throughout the journey.

Thank you for being a part of Bristol to Base Camp Jon.
