“Geordie Stewart is a remarkable man. Courageous, determined and highly committed, he undoubtedly has the capacity to climb Mount Everest, having reached a point only a few hundred metres from the summit during his 2010 attempt. He is, moreover, a highly articulate and credible advocate for the causes that he believes in, and it is for this reason that the RNLI is proud to support his 2011 attempt on Mount Everest, recognising the enduring values of courage, teamwork and a willingness to endure difficulty and discomfort for a greater cause – the values which enable our volunteer crews and beach lifeguards to save hundreds of lives at sea, year after year.
As an organisation, the RNLI is prepared to support Geordie in his bid to achieve success in this most demanding of personal goals. I hope that you too will be generous enough to offer him your support.”
- Paul Boissier – Chief Executive, RNLI
My Everest 2011 attempt will be in aid of The RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution). I have supported them since I was a young boy and, to date, nobody has taken an RNLI banner to the top of the world so I hope to raise funds and exposure for this amazingly worthwhile cause.
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. It is an entirely independent charity that receives no government backing so your support really will make a difference.
It currently has more than 40,000 volunteers which help to provide a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the coast of the UK and RoI. In 2010 alone, The RNLI saved the lives of 333 people as well as rescuing almost 6,000 others. The work it does is invaluable so please visit my JustGiving page and give whatever you can to this fantastic cause…
