Please sponsor us – it’s for a great cause

My daughter and I will be taking part in a 17 mile ‘Midnight March’ on 6th August, on behalf of Wildhearts in Action. Its part of a much longer (45 mile, overnight) #WolfTrek event, but we know our limitations…

Its the first time we have done something like this together, and I’m really looking forward to it.  We will not have had much time to train for it, however, so it will be a bit of a challenge!

If you would like to sponsor us, please check out our fundraiser page 

WildHearts is a charity that provides micro-loans and business training to people in the developing world, enabling them to work their own way out of poverty and support their families and communities.  Once one micro-loan recipient repays their loan, that money is then lent out to another member of their community.  Our fundraising will be re-lent for years to come, so by sponsoring us now you will continue to help more people work their way out of poverty every year.  You will transform their lives beyond all recognition and your money will be recycled up to three times a year, every year, creating a lasting legacy.  WildHearts micro-clients also receive health advice, AIDS/HIV awareness training and advice on saving and planning for the future.

  1. Any kind of charity activity like this not only is great for the cause but is also great for society (and boy our society needs some work at the moment!), but it also makes the person doing the run/walk etc etc feel great. Well done to you !

    Well, we managed the walk, 18 miles (not 17!!) in just over 6 hours. It was much tougher than I expected, mostly because of the speed at which the other walkers took off, and no way were we going to be near the end! It’s not too late to sponsor us, we are still a wee bit short of our target, and it’s a really good cause. Thank you!
