Icelandic Lava Trek

Event Date: 05 Jul 2015

My personal message

I'm doing a trek in Iceland this July to help raise money for Chai Cancer Care.

 

Chai is a fantastic organisation.  A pioneer in the field of cancer support, they provide vital therapies and a myriad of specialised services to over 2,150 cancer patients and their families from 8 sites around the UK, hospitals and in clients’ own homes. 

 

Chai does not charge for its services and does not receive any statutory funding and I want to do my small bit for these wonderful people.  That’s why I have decided to go very far out of my comfort zone - trekking 60km over 3 days across lava fields, glaciers and volcanic lakes in the wilderness of Iceland. The conditions will be harsh and we’ll be setting up camp ourselves each night (yes me!). We shall see if hours of treading the streets of London and marching up and down Highgate West Hill does anything to prepare me for this amazing challenge!

 

I do hope you can help me to raise funds to help Chai to continue to meet the rapidly increasing demand for its much needed rehabilitative, psychological, therapeutic and practical support services.

Thanks so much xxxxx
