Adrenaline junkies sought to raise funds on overseas charity challenge

The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is offering supporters the chance to take part in one of two overseas challenges to help raise money for the life-saving service.

The charity is offering the two once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for those with a thirst for adventure, with both overseas challenges taking place in September this year.

Adrenaline junkies can choose to take on either the Moroccan 3 Peaks Challenge, or the Kili 2 Coast cycle challenge.

The awe-inspiring trek across the Moroccan 3 Peaks, which will take 5 days to complete, will see participants reaching breath taking heights that host some of the most spectacular views.

Trekkers will experience the beautiful regions of the Atlas Mountains, with the first part of the journey taking place through classic Berber villages.

Participants will then ascend the first summit, Mount Mgoum, before moving onto Ouanoukrim, and then finally take on the highest peak of Mount Toubkal.

Avid cyclists are encouraged to take on the Charity’s Kili 2 Coast cycle challenge, which will see riders take on the 430km route over 6 days.

Participants will begin their journey from the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, before heading out towards the tropical paradise of the Indian Ocean. This unique route will see riders experience real Tanzania wildlife as they make their way along the edge of Mkomazi National Park; home to the endangered black rhino.

The challenge ends with true Swahili spirit in an ancient village, which is surrounded by stunning beaches and coral reefs.

“Our overseas challenges for 2020 offer our supporters the chance to do something amazing and an experience that they’ll never forget, all whist raising vital funds for our beloved Air Ambulance,” said Karen Carter, Area Fundraising Manager at the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance.

She added: “As well as taking away the stress of organising this trip for you, we’ll also be on hand to offer support with your fundraising efforts before you set off on your incredible journey.

“As a charity, we receive no direct Government funding, so challenges like this are truly valuable in helping us raise vital funds.”
