Drivers Trek to Everest in aid of Irish Kidney Association

We are delighted to announce that we have picked the Irish Kidney Association as our charity partner for 2017.

Patrick Brown & his son Robert , both taxi drivers with NRC, will be completing a trek to the Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas in May this year. They will be with members of a party travelling under the umbrella of Earth’s Edge, an agency that specialises in organising such ventures.

They will be funding the trip themselves so all monies raised by way of sponsorship will be paid directly to the Irish Kidney Association.

In recent years Patrick has had a kidney removed so he is fundraising out of gratitude for his recovery and out of a sense of solidarity with people who find themselves in similar circumstances.

Both drivers and NRC have raised €1,110 for this very worthwhile cause.

Wishing the best of luck to our drivers Patrick & Robert Brown with this challenge!
