Charity Registration No. 1060963

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Now that I am in my 35th year (aaaarghhh!!) I feel the need to complete a new challenge in my life! Being a little too used to the joys of red wine and a hot water bottle I am totally pushing myself by completing this trek into the Arctic Circle.

Over 3 days we will trek over 65km through the arctic, camping out on frozen lakes in temperatures that can fall below minus 25 degrees! This is no doubt a huge undertaking and as someone that would never be described as ‘outdoorsy’ will be a massive challenge including all the training beforehand.

I am so proud to be doing this for When You Wish Upon a Star, an amazing charity who grant the wishes of children aged 2-16 who live with a life threatening illness.

My aim is to raise £5000 which would provide a family with magical memories through what is an exceptionally hard time in their lives. 

Thank you so much for any donations that will help spur me on through the wind and snow!
