Everest for Hambo is an entirely different rendition of the Everest journey, shaped by the warmth and purpose of the people climbing it.
The film’s narrative is shaped by the escapades of Julian Evans, Sean James, Stuart Kershaw, Yuri Kruglov and their patron ‘Hambo’, whose own story and resilience parallels that of the climbers. Matt Hampson, ‘Hambo’, is an ex England rugby player who suffered an accident whilst training for England that left him paralysed from the neck down. Matt has since gone on to raise money to build a rehabilitation centre which helps other young people with spinal injuries.
Our four climbers are unified in their clarity of purpose – to climb the world’s highest mountain with stoicism, good humour and compassion, raising money for their friend and inspiration.
