Story

I am trekking along the Great Wall of China!

A challenging route of approximately 50 miles, along sections of this amazing ‘Wonder of the World’, the trek incorporates some tough climbs including the famous ‘Heaven’s Ladder’ - (200 steps up a cliff face!) 

I will be departing for Beijing on 6th September 2019, 5 weeks after my 50th birthday.

 “Turning 50 feels like a landmark moment in my life. My 40’s have been an interesting and, at times, tough decade with many major changes and achievements. I want to celebrate the start of a new decade by challenging myself - proving that I still can! I love travel and The Great Wall has always been on my ‘bucket list’ of must see places. Combining it with a significant charity appeal for a cause close to my heart seems like the perfect option.”

Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
