Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

I am raising money for the trek to the Great Wall of China with a friend and we have to raise at least £2,500 each. Out of this, the money is split between expenses and the money that goes straight to the charity (over 50%). Once we have reached our targets all extra donations go straight towards the charity's work in Africa.

This week Sophie and I climbed three mountains in Snowdonia to train for our trek. If you would like to share our page we will be forever grateful.

£158,000 with 8 days left seems a little steep to pay so this small donation will have to do, good luck with achieving your goal.
