Hi! My name is Shannon Cairns. I am a dedicated and hardworking student, from the University of Reading, climbing Mount Everest to base camp next September in aid of the National Autistic Society (NAS). I will be fundraising and climbing the mountain with a group of 20 other like-minded university students. Everyone in our society should have equal opportunities to flourish and that is what NAS is trying to achieve. I am aiming to raise £3000 for NAS.
