To celebrate EBC Group's 30th Anniversary, myself and the team have set ourselves the 30 for 30 Challenge to raise £30,000 for charity. 

On Saturday 18th May 2019 I will be travelling to Brazil to start a 9-day challenge of a lifetime in the Amazon jungle to raise vital funds for Midlands Air Ambulance.

This is no holiday! The Amazon Jungle Challenge will be physically and mentally tough as I step completely out of my comfort zone by surviving in the Amazon jungle.

During the challenge I'll be put to the test as I trek through the middle of the Rainforest with high temperatures and humidity; sleep in hammocks, fish for my dinner and row down the Amazon. 

The Amazon is the largest tropical rainforest on Earth, home to millions of species of insects and thousands of species of animals. In this remote jungle. The Amazon Survivor challenge is graded as “Tough” for a reason due to the remoteness of the locations and the extremely basic facilities encountered.

EBC Group partnered with Midlands Air Ambulance in 2016 when they became a client of EBC Group. We have been raising money for them through a range of fundraising including our Race Day and the Bear Grylls Challenge but this is set to be the toughest challenge yet! I have seen and heard some amazing stories, meeting crew, doctors, and survivors along the way. Their work is truly remarkable and every single day, they save lives. With no government funding they are reliant on donations for their life saving work.
