Just when we thought we had seen pretty much all fundraising ideas there are, Iestyn Lewis has blown us away with a monumental challenge involving a rugby ball, a helicopter and Mount Everest.
Beginning a trek to Everest Base Camp on the 1 November, 1st XV Clb member, Iestyn Lewis, will be trekking to the bottom of the world's highest mountain and then has three days take to the skies and launch himself out of a helicopter carrying a Bath Rugby ball.

Crazy huh?! That's what raising money for Bath Rugby Foundation means to Iestyn, and we are honoured that he has chosen us as his charity. 
Forget a Finn Russell offload, Iestyn could lay claim to the fastest Bath Rugby ball yet! 
Funding the trip himself, Iestyn is calling on supporters to make a donation, big or small, and raise £29,031.69p (the height of Mount Everest), to help the Foundation's work of changing the lives of vulnerable and challenged young people in and around Bath.
"Jumping off an AS350 B3 helicopter from the height of 24,000 ft, just below Everest; and landing at the Himalayan dreamlands Syangboche (12,402 ft); is undeniably the most thrilling aerial adventure in the world. The adrenaline rush, the eye-feasting view of the picturesque Sherpa settlement, the back drop of world’s highest peak Mt. Everest, along with other equally petrifying sister peaks, and the whole alpine experience - what else would an adventurer seek/ dream in a lifetime."
