Journey of a Lifetime Trust (JoLt)

For the past 25 years, the JoLt Trust has taken countless disadvantaged, ill and disabled teenagers on journeys of a lifetime. During these month-long expeditions to remote places like Alaska and the Andes they learn confidence, trust, respect, self-worth and teamwork.

Charity Registration No. 1088591

Story

[pictured above: me, Vivien, Selena, Kate and Livvy on our prep weekend, January 2019]

On 16 March 2019 I will be travelling to Nepal with four other women to trek in the Helambu region. We will be walking for up to eight hours a day, sometimes at high altitude, and staying in local communities. Our journey will also involve several days' off-road cycling and white water rafting.  

Every penny I raise in sponsorship will go towards helping disabled and disadvantaged youngsters to go on their 'journey of a lifetime' thanks to the JoLt Trust. Every two years this charity takes a group of 14-18 year olds on a month-long expedition designed to challenge and test them at a pivotal point in their personal development.  

My dad was a JoLt expedition leader and when he died I became a trustee of this amazing charity run entirely by volunteers. Through my communications work with JoLt I have come across many young people whose lives have been changed for the better. Please help us to continue this great work. It costs £5,000 to take each youngster on an expedition and we are already planning for 2020.

Thank you for visiting my page and supporting the JoLt Trust.
