Sheila and her friend, both from Kennethmont will undertake an intensive 8 day trek in the Annapurna region of the Himalaya.

Sheila said, “I would like to thank UNISON for their generous donation of £100.

“In May this year, Macmillan Cancer Support launched their fundraising challenge for Spring 2015 which will see 30 people from all over the UK travelling to Nepal for the trek.”

Sheila added, “My friend and I are passionate about the importance of the services which Macmillan Cancer Support offer, and, despite the many challenges ahead of fundraising, training and keeping our jobs and families going, we joined forces under the name of “Two Fab Ladies” to support this worthy cause.

Two Fab Ladies have so far raised half their target through organizing a number of events, bag packing, sponsorship and donations, but are determined to surpass the target of £7000 in order to ensure that any expenses the charity incurs in organizing the trek are also covered.

If you would like to support Sheila and the Two Fab Ladies in reaching their target, and for a very good cause, please donate to
