Intermediaries are going to the end of the Earth this week and on top of the world, well almost, was Millfield IFA George Petry (pictured above), flying the corporate flag.
George ascended the 18,005ft to Everest base camp and raised over £1,000 for the Sir Edmund Hillary Himalayan Trust and the Tom Hughes School for Orphaned Nepali Children.
George had some strange bedfellows on the return leg of his two-week trek, sharing his tent with a half-wild dog and a yak. He says: “The dog I could just about cope with, but when I saw the yak stroll in, I saw red and leapt out of the tent into the torrential rain. Lying under half a ton of hairy beef and a wild, rabid animal wasn't the best position to be in.”
