Well we got back a few days ago from the Sahara Desert and I can’t emphasis enough what an amazing place it is.
As you can see the sunrise and sunsets are breath taking. The people we trekked with were lovely and they were all raising money for their worthwhile respective charities.
We are in the process of getting all our pictures together and will make a video which we will post onto the site. We will also write a detailed blog of our adventures for you.
As always thank you to everyone who has sponsored us and made this challenge possible. We are enternally grateful to you all.
A huge thank you to Roy and the team at Fareham Wine Cellar for the generous donation of £200 and the bottles of wine. The wine is to be auctioned at our curry event on Sunday 19 February. We know the wine will be really good, and it should raise a fantastic amount more for the Rainbow Centre.
Wow! We passed £4,000. Thanks you so much from us and the Rainbow Centre for all the donations, which are crucial to maintain the vital service the Rainbow Centre provides every day.
Not wanting to rest at that level, we have decided to up the ante and raise at least £6,000 before we embark on our Sahara adventure.
A big thank you to all the staff at Taylorcocks accountants for their very kind sponsorship of £250.00.
Yet again we are very grateful to all our corporate sponsors and on behalf of the Rainbow centre and the children that attend the centre, THANK YOU.
Thank you to Simon and all the staff at K&S Aerospace Components who have committed to sponsor us £200 towards our Sahara Charity Trek.
Steve and I are both very grateful to all our corporate sponsors who are making this trip possible. Your commitment to our us and The Rainbow Centre will mean the children there will have a much brighter future.
A very big thank you to Ian & Fiona Farley of Farleys Printers for their sponsorship of £200.00 towards our Sahara Desert Trek.
This is a great commitment from them, towards a very worthy cause and we really appreciate all our corporate sponsors, because without them we would not be able to even attempt this trip.
So where are we……… We have less than 6 weeks to go before we fly off to Morocco and to be honest the only thing I am looking forward to is the 5 days of sunshine !
My training is going well, I was out at 9.00am this Saturday morning in the New Forest getting acclimatized in the -3 degrees temperature. My boots fit well and are really comfortable as is the rucksack. I loaded up the rucksack with 3 litres of water, lunch and some clothing to start to get used to wearing the pack.
Can you believe it was 21 years ago that The Rainbow Centre was started. So 2012 is going to be a great year for them and we intend to help them by raising as much money as we can, so that the Rainbow Centre can continue helping all those amazing kids.
After spending 5 days trekking through the Sahara Desert, I am sure we will have aches and pains. We may well be in need of a massage and some rest, but after that we will be back on our feet. That’s easy for us to say, because like most of you we take walking for granted. The children that attend The Rainbow Centre may take months even years to learn to walk and may never to able to walk without assistance.
