In October 2007 I will be setting out on a 80km trek across the Great Rift Valley in Africa. I will be raising money for ActionAid, a charity I have supported for many years through their child sponsorship scheme. I am aiming to raise a minimum of £3000 in sponsorhip for the trip so really appreciate every penny you can contribute.

Here are a few bits from the ActionAid website that may give you an idea of where you're money goes - as you can see, every pound really does make a difference.

  • £7 could buy the books a child in Ethiopia needs to start school.
  • £10 could buy hoes, buckets and a seed pack for a family in Zimbabwe to grown their own food.
  • £15 could train two local people in basic healthcare in Mozambique.
  • £20 could send a child to school for two years in Rwanda.
  • £42 could provide six people with safe, clean water in Mozambique.
  • Please check out my Blog at http://explorenewhorizons.blogspot.com/ to keep up to date with my progress

    Many thanks to all those who have sponsored me already, I am well on the way to raising my minimum target which is great. I am planning plenty of fundraising events over the coming months so keep a close eye.
