RICHARD PARKS' 737 CHALLENGE ‘WELCOME HOME’ DINNER
Wednesday 22 June 2011
Richard Parks, former Welsh Rugby player is currently on the world’s first 737 Challenge – a seven month expedition to climb the seven summits of the world, while venturing the last degree to the South Pole and Geographic North Pole.
If Richard is successful he will become the first ever person to stand on the continental summits and all three poles (The South Pole, The Geographic North Pole and the summit of Everest) in the same calendar year.
To welcome Richard and his team home and celebrate their fantastic achievement, a gala dinner will be held on September 15 2011 at City Hall, Cardiff.
The evening hosted by Gethin Jones will include a live auction and raffle and presentations from Richard Parks and other special guests.
Overall, the 737 Challenge is hoping to raise £1 million in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Quadrant wishes Richard and his team the best of luck for the remainder of the challenge and an enjoyable evening at the ‘Welcome Home’ dinner in September.
