A Moroc­can three peaks

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

WOULD you like to chal­lenge your­self while help­ing to raise vi­tal funds for a fan­tas­tic lo­cal char­ity?

Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care has a very ex­cit­ing event planned for 2016, The Moroc­can Three Peaks Chal­lenge.

Lo­cated in the High At­las Moun­tain range, three spec­tac­u­lar peaks await. Jbel Toubkal, Jbel Ouanoukrim and M’Goun are Morocco’s three high­est peaks and of­fer a tempt­ing chal­lenge to ad­ven­tur­ous and fit trekkers.

Jo Hunt, events fundraiser, said: “This sev­en­day trek is graded chal­leng­ing, and you must be at a good level of fit­ness to en­sure you have the best chance of suc­cess and the great­est en­joy­ment.

“This trek is ac­com­pa­nied by pro­fes­sional English-speak­ing lo­cal guides who have an ex­cel­lent knowl­edge of trekking and cul­ture in the re­gion and are first aid trained. You will also be sup­ported by a full crew of cooks, mules (and mule­teers) and a Dif­fer­ent Travel Com­pany UK tour manager.”

The trek, which in­cludes mainly camp­ing overnight, can be un­der­taken by any­one of any age (although any­one un­der 18 must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult) as long as you have a good level of fit­ness and you are healthy and determined. There is no up­per age limit.

Jo added: “An ideal can­di­date for the trek would be some­one who en­joys be­ing out of their com­fort zone and try­ing some­thing new.”

A £270 reg­is­tra­tion fee is payable at the time of book­ing and once you are reg­is­tered, you must com­mit to rais­ing at least £1,500 in spon­sor­ship.

If you book by the end of the month, the char­ity is of­fer­ing the chance to pay the book­ing fee in two in­stal­ments, in May and June.

Jo said: “The fundrais­ing team will fully sup­port you and help you with ideas on how to raise funds. The tar­get may sound daunt­ing, but bro­ken into smaller pieces it is eas­ily achiev­able. The money you raise will help fund the work of our Hospice at Home nurses and fam­ily sup­port ser­vices.”

The trip, from June 18-26 2016 in­cludes flights from Lon­don, trans­fers and trans­port in Morocco, ac­com­mo­da­tion, tents and sleep­ing mats, meals, porters/mules and cooks, trekking per­mits and a UK Dif­fer­ent Travel tour manager as well as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Ren­nie Grove.

The closing date for reg­is­tra­tion is De­cem­ber 14. Visit www.ren­niegrove.org/mo­roc­can3­peaks for more de­tails.
