Adventure treks on offer to help disabled children


MANY of your readers will have watched television’s Comic Relief and been inspired by the nine brave celebrities who took part in the biggest challenge of their lives – five long, hot and gruelling days on a desert trek – to help raise money for charity.

Taking on a life-time challenge like this is a wonderful experience and is very rewarding – as I know from personal experience, when I took part in a trek to Vietnam last year to help raise money for The Children’s Trust.

The Children’s Trust has two overseas treks taking place later in the year and we would love to hear from anyone wishing to sign-up to either of these to enjoy a special adventure.

They are: Kilimanjaro from September 1-11, and a trek to Peru from October 21-30.

Both these challenges will be demanding, exciting, and simply unforgettable experiences, and the money raised will help to enhance the lives of some of the UK’s most severely disabled children.

If you have a taste for adventure and want to take on a special challenge and make a difference to some very special children, then please consider signing-up to one of these treks.

To find out more, visit our website at: or telephone the Trust’s team which is on 01737 364329.

The Children’s Trust is a national charity, which provides therapy, care and education for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs, and rehabilitation to children with an acquired brain injury.
