Hi...this is a pledge to all my supportive friends and family!  I am very lucky there, of course :-)

Here we go again, well the last time I actually braved a Trek of this kind was back in 2007 where I ended up with 10 blisters , a nose bleed and chaffing beyond belief!  That was 100km through the Sahara Desert, ouch.

This time I have agreed to embark on the challenge of climbing the Great Wall of China - YIKES, I am scared.  How on earth did this happen?

As most of you know I intend to raise money for orphans in Zambia to help educate, feed and give them a chance in life that we take for granted here. This is literally £ for £ fundriasing as my trip costs are covered...so literally every penny raised goes direct to the cause :-)

I have been out, bought the footwear so now its time to begin my training and nothing motivates me more than money going to charity. 

I cannot thank you enough in advance for any donation given no matter how large or small.  It will motivate me to acheive my goal, it really will so thank you from my heart & soon to be sore feet!

Sadly, since I pledged to embark on this tough challenge, I have learnt that the remarkable lady who set up the orphanage 15 years ago, and who has helped hundreds of vulnerable and bereaved children, has died suddenly. Mrs Ranji Chara has been an inspiration to my family and to many people all over the world, and so I dedicate this fundraising effort to her.
