Normal activity for this blog will be suspended for the next few days, as Arvind, Sheila, Trond and Iren (see below!) climb Kota Kinabalu for charity. Their appeal for sponsorship will follow, as will updates from the mountains (mobile reception pending!) and photos on Arvind and Sheila’s return.
Please do give support by donating to any of the charities supporting the relief efforts, and post comments on the blog / email me if you don’t mind as it’ll help give an indication of the total sums raised and will allow us to attribute your donation on this site if you so desire it.
I’d be trekking with them, but have to get some (non-serious, but essential) surgery done prior to my return to London.
All the best,
