 Published on: 7th September 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

Often we get the impression that certain people were born to do achieve certain things, and Rasseed Goolamhoseen is certainly one of those people. The Abbots Langley man is notorious for his intrepid charity challenges which have seen him trek across some of the world’s toughest terrain, including the Atlas Mountains, Kilimanjaro and up to the Everest base camp. Now the 69-year-old is heading for South East Asia, where he will climb Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia, next month in support of the Peace Hospice Care in Watford, who need to raise over £4 million every year to continue their work. Rasseed talked to My Abbots News about the trek and the inspiration behind his fundraising. He said: “My mother was a victim of cancer in Mauritius, where there was no form of any support for people with terminal illness and I still feel her pain today after witnessing the agony she suffered. “My previous fundraising stunt was for Cancer Research – my daughter and myself trekked Ben Nevis… Hear what else Rasseed had to say, and more, in the September edition of My Abbots News, which was distributed on September 2.
