Who is Les Binns?

Les Binns is an ex-serviceman with a military career spanning over 13 years, in which he served in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. After recovering from a serious injury, Les took on a new adventure and decided to climb Mount Everest, nearly reaching the top before a dramatic incident. Read more about his incredible story here.

The Challenge

Les has challenged himself to climb Mount Everest again and raise money for ABF The Soldiers Charity. He has so far raised over £7,000 (February 2017) and you can support his excellent cause by donating here.

Why Everest is supporting Les

Ever since reading about the dramatic events that took place in the ‘death zone’ we wanted to support Les on his next adventure. Everyone here at Everest was inspired by the selfless decision Les took to give up on his dream of reaching the summit to try and save the lives of the climbers in danger. When we found out Les hadn’t given up on his dream and would once again set out to summit Mount Everest, we knew we had to support him every step of the way.
