Who Cares? Scotland

We support Care Experienced people to ensure they are heard and empowered

Charity Registration No. SC026076

Story

In November 2009 I will undertake the biggest challenge of my life – trekking over 100km through the foothills of the Himalaya on the Who Cares? Scotland Bhara Pokhari trek.

The Challenge will help raise funds for Who Cares? Scotland (Registered Charity No. SC026076), a charity that offers support and advocacy to young people in care in Scotland. This trip represents an amazing opportunity and challenge for all participants but particularly for the young people involved, all of who have lived in care.  The money raised will not only help finance their support and participation in the trip; it will also help other young people supported through the charity’s work. 

A second beneficiary of the Challenge will be Community Action Nepal (Registered Charity No. 1067772), patroned by Sir Chris Bonnington. Community Action Nepal (CAN) use money raised to benefit the people of rural Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world. It is a country in which many of the things we tend to take for granted, such as clean water, education and medical care, are not freely available.  CAN has built and run schools, medical posts, water supplies, porter shelters and many other community projects.

The coming months will be dedicated to getting fit for the trek and to fundraising.  I have a target of £1,900.00, a sum that will help me participate in the Challenge and contribute to the work of both Who Cares? Scotland and Community Action Nepal.  I would greatly appreciate your help in reaching that target.
