Earlier this year Rohan Anand achieved an incredible feat and climbed Mount Everest, all in the name of supporting unpaid carers.
Rohan spent 12 days trekking and climbing up the harsh terrain and through the frozen air of the world’s highest peak, with the aim to raise donations and awareness for unpaid carers. It took him almost two weeks to complete the climb, reaching altitudes of 5600 metres (18,373 feet), all in the name of unpaid carers. He raised a remarkable £1,290.
Rohan works for a Birmingham based accountancy firm; BDO Services Ltd, and they have generously added an additional £500 donation to Rohan’s, via their Matched Funding Service, bringing the total raised for unpaid carers to a staggering £1,790.
BDO Matched Funding provides additional funds to donations raised by their employees charitable efforts. We could not be more thankful for their efforts but especially Rohan’s, without whom none of this would have been possible.
We at Carers Trust Solihull would like to extend our deepest thanks to both Rohan and BDO for their donations and efforts in helping us to care for unpaid carers.
It is because of people and organisations like Rohan and BDO, raising donations but also awareness, that allows Carers Trust Solihull to reach out and bring in unpaid carers under our umbrella of support. They too must tackle obstacles and battle through peaks and pits on a daily basis. Yet for us and unpaid carers, it is a never ending climb with the end of our journey always one more step in front of us. It is with the support of the public and organisations like Rohan and BDO Services, that allows us to keep supporting unpaid carers in their never-ending climb.
Carers Trust Solihull thanks Rohan Anand and BDO Services for their generosity and dedication to helping unpaid carers.
