Stourton charity stages Nepal trek to mark 25th anniversary
9:00am Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in Local
A STOURTON charity which acts as a lifeline for teen mums is organising a trek to Nepal to mark its 25th anniversary.
Living Springs, based at Barratts Coppice Farmhouse, Bridgnorth Road, provides refuge for young mothers aged 16 to 25 and aims to equip them with basic life skills to live independently.
The charity, set up by Robert and Jane Chapman, is organising a ten day trek to Nepal next March and is seeking adventurous people to take part.
Robert said: “Our aim is for those taking part to enjoy a personal challenge and for them to be part of making a real difference to people’s lives by helping to provide support in the community for vulnerable families.
“This trip of a lifetime is a great way to celebrate our past and to look to the future as we aim to help many more families in the next 25 years.”
With no set money-raising target, people are asked to raise what they can or make a donation whether it is large or small.
The tour involves flights to Kathmandu and Pokhara and the treks include Syaull, Ghandruk, Tadapani, Ghorepanl, Poon Hill - one of Nepal’s best view points - and Tirkedunga.
There will be the chance to see stunning mountain views, birds of prey, trek through oak and rhododendron forests, sleep in lodges and witness beautiful sunrises and spectacular sunsets.
The trip is being organised by Dream Challenges who are ATOL bonded and part of www.actionforcharity.co.uk.
