- Weeks after completing their gruelling climb to Mount Everest's base camp, Fair City actress Jenny Kavanagh and her former

co-star George McMahon, (who played Mondo) reunited with the rest of Team Hope over the weekend to support fellow climber Philip Gray as he exhibited Everest On Canvas at the RDS Art Fair.

The gutsy fundraisers recently spent three painful weeks in Nepal, trekking through the mountains before making a technical climb to 20,350 feet -- raising €60,000 for the Hope Foundation and street kids in Calcutta.

The team are still raising funds for the foundation and are trying to help build a new home for girls for its project in Calcutta.
