Story

Thank you for visiting my page - I am trekking the Amazon Jungle in September 2018 for Enham Trust, a charity I work for. Anyone who knows me will tell you that this challenge is going to be tough for me, due to having phobias of spiders and pretty much anything that flies. I am determined to push myself to my limit to raise valuable funding for Enham Trust.

This challenge will really test me, I will be sleeping out in the open, catching my own food, trekking for 5+ hours a day and also being dirty (I am a clean freak).

Why? I hear you ask... I decided to work for Enham Trust which is a pan-disability charity due to my passion in helping people who are less fortunate and to support those who face stigma and discrimination. I also have personal reasons for supporting people with disabilities as some of my own family have faced significant barriers due to the nature of their disabilities. I believe with the right support and dedication, anyone can achieve their goals, whether this is to take steps unaided or even to simply gain independent living skills such as cooking their meals.

Enham Trust encompasses the above, and everyday I am inspired. Any support you can provide will be hugely appreciated and will keep me going on the trek!

Thank you!
