DAME JOANNA LUMLEY
Joanna has graciously agreed to become Patron of Snowland Journeys. She has a long association and interest in Nepal and its people inspired by her father's service as an officer in 6th Gurkha Rifles.
I went to boarding school; but I was eight, and I came home for the holidays and therefore was with my family as I turned from being a little child into a teenager. Imagine not seeing your parents and home for 12 years! The remote mountain villages in Nepal are notoriously difficult to get to; and yet imagine the black and white choice between home life or being educated miles away.
