Sir Chris Bonington has decided to auction off the Olympic torch he carried to the summit of mount Snowdon, in order to raise money for charity.
His friend and fellow mountaineer, Doug Scott, founded 'Community Action Nepal', a charity which helps support the mountain people of Nepal.
The Olympic Torch is currently being auctioned through open online bids, with the climax of the auction coming at a special mountaineering lecture and fund raising event at the Royal Geographical Society on Wednesday 14th November.
Bids can be placed through the Community Action Nepal website.
