The Last Overland have reached Nepal
The Last Overland Expedition famously drove a Land Rover from the UK to Singapore back in 1955.
Filmmaker Alex Bescoby along with the grandson of Tim, an original member of The Last Overland Team, is attempting the same 16,000km journey in the same vehicle, raising money for a number of charities, including us. They’re currently through Nepal and we’ve been delighted to welcome them at our Welfare Centres along the way.
