On Wednesday morning 12th October, I will be kick starting my journey to China – to take part in ‘The Great Wall of China Trek Challenge for Animals Asia. I will be joining a team of volunteers, who between us, we have raised thousands of pounds for this truly wonderful charity.
Founded by Jill Robinson, this charity has achieved so much with regards to animal welfare, particularly in China and Vietnam. They have already rescued over 600 bears from bear bile farms, whilst at the same time through diplomacy, understanding and education, they are continuing to change hearts and minds about animals and their welfare within Asia.
The last few days has been a little frantic – packing, fitness training and reconnecting with chop sticks too, but I cannot wait for the experience, challenge and the stories and pictures I will be able to share on my return.
Although my Just Giving page is now closed for donations to the trek, should anyone wish to make a direct donation to Animals Asia please follow this link below. Thank you! XX
