Cork referee John Linehan tells us why he is heading on a charity trek to Everest

"After visiting Mukuru Slum in 2010 with Childaid I have decided to try and raise some more desperately needed Funds for the Kids in Nairobi.

On March 3rd I am travelling to Nepal to Trek to The Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 5,364 metres (17,598 ft) in my Referees Kit.

Right, I know some will say Charity begins at home. I agree, however when I was in Africa I witnessed DESPERATION beyond anything I ever saw. 

On my last night on Kili I after "washing" with Baby wipes only for 5 days, changed my socks & underwear which I disposed of in a bin. Shortly afterwards a local removed same and sneaked them into his pocket..... Now, that is poverty that we are lucky enough to have never seen. This is why I am so passionate about doing more to help these fellow Human Beings."
