John Brown 4x4, leaders in Classic Land Rover® restoration in the UK, are supporting a key member of their team on the adventure of a lifetime. Tim Sinclair, a Body-shop technician at John Brown 4x4, is climbing Island Peak in the Himalayas raising money for the Guillain-Barré syndrome charity, GAIN.

The three-week expedition will involve embarking on a descent of 6200m with less than 10% oxygen at the summit. Tim commences his climb on the 26th October 2020, heading first to the famous Everest Basecamp, then on to Imje Tse where he begins the journey to the summit, traversing ice ridges and climbing ice walls to reach his ultimate goal.

As a company, John Brown 4x4 are proud to be providing Tim with all the time, resources and funding he requires in the months leading up to and while on his trip, enabling and encouraging him to adhere to a strict nine-month training and diet plan in preparation for the high altitude. At John Brown 4x4, Tim takes the lead on all operations in the Body-shop, ensuring the cosmetics and intricacies of each and every Classic Land Rover® are perfect and no minor imperfections are missed. Tim is proud to be representing his team all the way to the top, sporting John Brown 4x4 gear on his 12-hour climb to reach Island Peak, named for being surrounded by treacherous ice ridges.

Tim is a born adventurer and John Brown 4x4 are honoured to be sponsoring the technician on his expedition. The team are helping him to raise money for GAIN, a charity offering support to those suffering from the rare Guillain-Barré syndrome and promoting further research into the condition affecting the nervous system that can lead to permanent paralysis in some cases.
