DrKW takes to the dizzy heights
Well done to the estimable Rowan Staines of Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein's media relations team.
While most of us spent our summer holidays by the pool with Harry Potter and Dan Brown, Rowan had other ideas. As one of a party that spent five days trekking in Pakistan's spectacular North West Frontier Province, she covered 60km and climbed to more than 4,300 metres.
Rowan made it back unscathed, although she did have a brief bout of altitude sickness, during which she doubtless leant on one of her fellow trekkers, DrKW's European co-head of M&A, Tariq Hussain. Tariq is a trustee of charity The Citizens Foundation. Through sponsorships and contributions, the trek raised more than £100,000 for its work promoting education projects in Pakistan.
