Mountaineer Kenton Cool and his team donned Mask-arade Personalised Masks at Everest base camp, 5,364 metres above sea level. Cool honoured a 1924 pledge made by Olympian Lt Col Strutt who, after famously attempting to climb Mount Everest, announced that one day he would take one of his gold medals back to the summit.

During its relatively short history, the Mask-arade staff have met in excess of 150 celebrities, presented them with masks and obtained nearly 2000 autographed masks from stars of stage, screen, politics and sport. The company recently collected the Warwickshire Marketing Award at the Ricoh Arena.
