Following Sunday’s World Humanitarian Day, we at Bruce Gillingham Pollard are immensely proud to announce that this October our own Nick Garston will be joining a team of Chef’s, Restauranteurs and food industry experts to embark on a gruelling four day trek through Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains, in the name of Action Against Hunger.

For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, Action Against Hunger have led the global fight against malnutrition through the implementation of innovative, lifesaving programmes in nutrition, food security, water sanitation and hygiene. Their efforts enable entire communities to be free from hunger, and save hundreds of thousands of lives each year. However, millions of undernourished children remain in need of lifesaving treatment, and it is for these children that the team will challenge themselves to raise £100,000, by trekking through the vast Simien Mountain range.

The dramatic skyline of the wild and remote Simien Mountains; an UNESCO World Heritage Site, stretches across northern Ethiopia. Spectacular to behold, but not for the faint of heart, the team will be sleeping in basic camping facilities whilst enduring long days trekking at extreme altitudes of up to 4,300m, as they cross jagged peaks and deep, rugged gorges.

Trekking with Nick will be; Sabor’s Nieves Barragan; The Dairy’s Dan Joines and Robin Gill; Bone Daddies’ Fran Astbury; Hammerson’s Sarah Fox; Kitchen Table’s James Knappett; Quality Chop House’s Shaun Searley; Hawksmoor’s Rosie Mira; Action Against Hunger’s Francine Heggie; and Breddos Tacos’ Chris Whitney.

You can support the team in their efforts to raise £100,000 for Action Against Hunger’s lifesaving programmes around the world by making a donation to their sponsorship pages:
