Heathlands is a large care home for the elderly in Prestwich that caters for residential, nursing, respite, dementia and end of life. It’s very close to my heart and as the resident electrician, I see on a daily basis the hard work and dedication the staff carry out, always with a smile on their faces. It’s a registered charity and always striving to improve. I wanted to set myself a challenge which would be both mentally and physically demanding and Everest base camp is the ultimate trekking challenge. I don’t like the cold, I’m a really fussy eater, I don’t do sleeping bags and the thought of not showering daily is not something I am looking forward to and it will be my very first trek – like I said, I wanted a personal challenge!
