With more than £7000 raised at our Evening of Adventure earlier this week, work can begin on a new flood defence wall to help protect the vulnerable village and homes in the Kalash Valleys of northern Pakistan.

A full-house of over 700 people packed into the Royal Geographical Society in London to hear travel tales from our esteemed line up – the legendary Michael Palin, explorer extraordinaire Benedict Allen, extreme stand-up paddle boarder and adventurer Spike Reid and our own Jonny Bealby – and help raise funds for the Wild Frontiers Foundation.

This money will go a long way in helping to protect this remote mountain community from the regular floodwaters that rip through the region – in recent years washing away homes, village buildings and even the local primary school.

Thank you to all who attended to help build a wall for all the right reasons!
