Hope and Homes for Children

15 March 2018 by  

We are very proud to support Hope and Homes for Children and their amazing event “A Night of Adventure”.  This year we donated a place on one of our Teen Travel UK Tours.

So far the evening has raised an incredible £22,000!

Orphanages do not protect children, which is why we are working towards a day where every child can grow up within the love and protection of a family. Family-based care has been proven to provide far better outcomes for children, and with your support we are making an impact on the lives of children, families and communities right across the world.

Night of Adventure

Sarah, our North Camp Director, attended the evening:

The motto of the night was ‘just do it’.

It is always an amazing evening listening to these great modern day adventures. There were base jumpers, naked cyclists, mountain men, walkers and complete lunatics. But all in the name of one thing…adventure!

One of the stand out highlights has always got to be ‘McNuff’, the adventure Queen herself. Anna told her tail of cycling 5,500 miles through the Southern Andes with her best mate, Faye Shepherd, and how amazing it was to share the ‘ups and downs’ (pardon the pun) with her.

Next on my list would be the ‘Mountain Man’ himself, Charlie Walker who travelled across Mongolia with the plan of using a semi-wild pony as his mode of transport. The pony had other plans and so the tale goes that Charlie walked the pony across the majestic plains, with a wild dog in toe for company.

The list would not be complete without Ben Saunders, a polar explorer who has travelled in Robert Falcon Scott’s footsteps and completed the longest human powered polar journey in history!

I came away feeling completely inspired and excited for our summer adventure to begin at L&E, wondering what your teen travellers would plan this year! SC
