Riding high on the enormous success of the October 2014 and March 2016 Hospice Sahara Treks we are planning a third adventure into the desert.
We are looking for adventurers from any and all backgrounds to join Team ARTHUR as we embark on the Sahara Challenge. Are you looking an event to train towards? Or a challenge to get your teeth into? The Sahara is calling.
Experience the wonder of the Sahara as we trek across sand dunes and rocky terrain with experienced local Berber guides. A caravan of camels trekking with you carry your tents and each night you will sleep under the stars and enjoy freshly prepared local cuisine. Working with our partners, Different Travel, we will provide the trip infrastructure for you allowing you to get on with your amazing challenge.
Every member of the Team ARTHUR trek team will be fundraising to support Arthur Rank Hospice! Join the team today and start making a difference to people living with life-limiting illnesses.
There are three ways to take part in this challenge. For full details please contact here.
- Pay the £275 deposit and raise the minimum sponsorship of £1690 to cover the cost of your challenge.
- Self-fund the challenge costs and raise as much sponsorship as you can.
- Partly self-fund the challenge costs and raise the remaining in sponsorship
Joining Team ARTHUR will give you access to a wealth of fundraising experience as we will support you along the way with our fundraising tools, promotional items and media coverage.
Remember, any UK taxpayer can increase their gift by 25p for every pound donated through Gift Aid. (If your sponsorship is covering the cost of your challenge we are unable to claim gift aid on any donation received from family members. Please refer to the Fundraising Team for further information.)
Dates for upcoming trips are: 15 - 21 March 2018
