In September, three women will be trekking the Inca Trail in Peru to raise money for a worthy charity campaign.
One of the three is Pam Hobson, my sister, who says:
Between 14th & 27th September I will be undertaking the most arduous challenge of my life! [...] With my friends Karen Slatford and Fiona Coughlan, we are raising much-needed funds for The Prince's Trust to help young disadvantaged people in Berkshire in the UK.
Their trek is tough – while only 43km (26.6 miles) long, it involves climbing over 3,000 steps at altitudes of between 2,400m (9,000ft) and 4,198m (13,700ft) and coping with extremes of temperatures in the day of between 10-20C, falling to as low as freezing at night. The three women will probably experience some frost or snow on some of the higher passes.
So if you would like to help Pam and her friends achieve their goal of raising ₤2,000 for The Prince's Trust, the charity founded by the Prince of Wales in 1976, please consider donating a few euros, pounds or dollars.
You can donate online at a secure website and your donation may be tax deductible. Thanks.
