Feverest is back!
The CITC Feverest challenge is back for 2019!
Feverest is inspired by CITC supporter Olly Middleton who is running every day of February to help raise money to support children’s education in rural Nepal. He will be running 250km in February, equivalent to the height of Everest every day of the month!
How many ‘Feverests’ can you complete in February? Could you take on the challenge to get fit and raise money for Classrooms in the Clouds?
Can you run/walk or cycle the height of Everest 8.8km (5.4 miles)? Whether you do it daily, weekly or as a one off, on your own or with a group, we would love to see your photos!
Use the hashtag #Feverest and tag us @CITCNepal on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter

Celebrations have been taking place in the Village of Bung as the 6 new and 2 refurbished classrooms at Shree Sagarmatha High School have been officially opened. In March, a joyous ceremony saw the opening of 2 pairs of classrooms built to earthquake resistant standards with an innovative design that joins them with a shared covered area.  This will provide the necessary space for all weather, child centred learning activities. This phase of the project has been supported by the International Rotary and the Cheshire Fire Apprentices. The Apprentices were in attendance after travelling to Nepal to see the results of their tireless fundraising and help with the finishing touches. Read more in their blog here.

A further ceremony was also held in April to open the additional 2 new classrooms supported by the Dudley Schools partnership and the 2 refurbished classrooms thanks to the British Foreign Schools Society.  Representatives from the Dudley partnership were in attendance and were warmly welcomed by the community of Bung along with the school management committee and government officials.

The project is part of CITC's wider vision to improve educational standards in the area which includes the ongoing sponsorship and development of teachers. Follow @CITCNepal on Facebook and Twitter to see the latest updates about the project.

Cheshire Fire’s Sam Rogers, Rachel Main, Joshua Brunning and Hollie Barlow have taken part in an interview on Martin Logan’s The Irish in the UK show along with Sarah Hagen from Classrooms in the Clouds. The interview was a fantastic opportunity for the apprentices to talk about the fundraising they have been working so hard at to help children in Nepal to get an education. Over the last two years, they have dedicated their time and efforts to support the funding for the new 4 classroom Early Years Centre in the remote village of Kharikhola, Nepal which is due to be completed in March. They also discussed their upcoming trip to the school where they will help the community to finish the project in time for the opening. Read more here. It was great to see Sarah Hagen on the show to spread the word about the work of Classrooms in the Clouds and to express CITC’s appreciation for the apprentices’ commitment and enthusiasm for the project.

It has taken 90 days for Vivienne Arkell and Joanne Chapman to walk from Land’s End to John o’Groats with the support of their friends Tracy and Jason.  They have covered an astonishing 1,235 miles, persevering through rain, shine and numerous pairs of boots! Their determination has raised an amazing £2,354 between them for CITCNepal!
The end to end challenge officially finished at 4pm on Thursday 29th June at Duncansby Head (the most north easterly point in the British Isles). Check out Vivienne’s fascinating and highly entertaining blog to read more about their adventure and to see their stunning photographs that really show off Britain’s great beauty.

Their efforts will help us to continue to make a difference to children in some of the most remote areas of Nepal by building classrooms and delivering a high quality education.
