5 Days Trekking 100k across the Jordan desert!

171% Raised
As I start a new chapter in my life and  turn 50 years of age – I want to give back where I can by helping others. Thousands of children live in deep poverty, where their lives are characterised by chaos & trauma, who are cold, hungry, & forced to be grateful recipients of food banks & warm hubs.
Whilst I can not experience the pain & anxiety that they feel daily, I am going to challenge myself and Trek 100km across the desert & put myself out of my comfort zone, away from all civilised amenities (including my phone and PC) for 5 days to help raise vital funding to support this  fabulous children’s charity.
I want to make a difference and help towards reshaping childhood poverty -

 As Childhood happens once in a lifetime and cannot be re-lived. I want to help towards a child reaching their full potential whilst feeling safe and valued.
I am  asking for your help to make this happen.
Every pound I raise will go directly to this fabulous Children's Charity - making a difference to the childhood of hundreds of children in local communities - thank you for supporting me and for your kindness in helping us change lives and create brighter futures in Wales
