Story

Thanks for taking time to visit our page!

Will and I are a father/son team who wanted to combine our love of wild places with the chance to raise some money for something we care deeply about. The news has been full of terrible stories about what is happening in Palestine; some are about an oppressed, dispossessed people, walled off from their homelands by the neighbourhood bully. Others tell the story of violence and terror that has to be opposed by a civil society.

There are other stories however- stories of resilience and small successes. Stories of partnerships and friendships forged across the wall. Real lives full of good things are lived despite of the huge problems faced by people in Palestine. That is why we love what Children of Peace are doing- finding ways for people to connect, share life and understanding. Helping those with to give to those without. 

Any contributions you can give to this brilliant cause would be very much appreciated, particularly as we nurse our blisters and aching backs!
