Raising money to fund a trip to Peru with Camp International July 2018
Tom will be working in the community of Kajilarakay. There is no basic sanitation, sewerage and limited drinking water. Crop failure in this area has resulted in malnutrition. Tom will be contributing by building basic structures, such as latrines, (laying foundations, mixing cement) building walls and assisting with the planting and harvesting of small foods crops.
This life-enhancing expedition is being organised by Camp International Peru which have many years experience in hosting school trips to this area. The young people taking part will get to experience culture and amazing scenery of one of the world’s most ancient civilisations.
Lyke Wake walk - 44 miles in 24 hours!
As part of the fund raising effort, (and also because I have recently hit the ripe old age of 50 ) we have decided to tackle the Lyke Wake Walk - a 44 mile walk across the North Yorkshire Moors. We intend to complete the walk inside 24 hours (!)
The date? 30th September-1st October 2017 . It would be great if you could support us!

Thank you all so much for your support! The walk was indeed a challenge, more so as much of it was in the dark across swampy moorland, sometimes up to our knees in the mire. I am so very proud of Tom! We eventually arrived back home at 4.00 am on Sunday morning, after having a snooze in a layby. Sunday was spent mainly horizontal! A big thank you also goes to our support driver Andy Neill, who supplied us with hot drinks, bacon butties and encouragement!
