Peru’s capital Lima only ever experiences a humid drizzle, they never have proper rain. Unfortunately the same can’t be said for England and our launch event at the wonderful Llama Park in Forest Row, Sussex saw some wonderful Chestnut Tree House families and Inca Trail trekkers getting quite wet!
The event was to launch Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice’s charity experience of a lifetime; the 52km trek along the Inca Trail in Peru. They are looking to recruit intrepid explorers to sign up and join Patron Jodie Kidd for the journey through the Sun Gate to the world famous lost city of Machu Picchu.
After the success of fundraising treks to China in 2015 and Cambodia in 2017 which raised a staggering £133,477 – equating to 19 days of care, Chestnut Tree House has teamed up with Global Adventure Challenges for their third expedition.
Chestnut Tree House is inviting people to take on one of the world’s most iconic trekking trails. The Inca Trail in Peru is one of the top 10 trekking trails in the world – covering 52km in just 10 days and encompassing sub-tropical vegetation, cloud forest, snowcapped peaks and three high mountain passes – the highest at 4,200m. The trekking will be tough, but this life-changing experience taking place from 1-10 November 2019 will be hard to surpass. Best of all, participants will be fundraising to pay for all Chestnut Tree House’s care services, both at the hospice and in families’ own homes, for the entire duration of the trip.
