To the mountains and valleys

Trustee Paul Crosby hosted a talk and slide show by his friend Paul Gallagher (pictured above) and fellow cyclist Dave, about their month-long unsupported cycling trip from Leh to Shimla through the amazing scenery of the Himalayas.

Paul Gallagher, a former volunteer for Batemans, was keen to support us and the talk, held in Paul Crosby’s offices in Kendal, Cumbria, attracted a full house. As well as a fascinating show, guests were also treated to nibbles of poppadoms and chutney plus the classic Indian drink, sweet chai. It proved a very successful evening – raising more than £630.
