We are looking for intrepid explorers who would like to join St Catherine's for the adventure of a lifetime and hike across one of the largest deserts in the world.
** We are holding an Information Evening on Thursday 28th February from 6.30pm for you to find out more about the trek. Click here for more details.**
Whether you are an experienced hiker, or have never so much as owned a pair of walking boots, joining St Catherine’s trekking team is a decision you won’t regret. You'll make life-long memories and friendships as you experience a natural wonder of the world.
Taking place from 26 - 31 March 2020, the dazzling trip is the perfect chance to challenge yourself, while raising money to help terminally ill people in your community. Your £2,020 sponsorship, plus £300 registration fee, will help St Catherine’s care for more local people, and their families, so no one has to face death and loss alone.
If you decide to sign up and make your steps count, you'll spend three days trekking through the Moroccan Sahara across ancient dried up river beds, sand dunes and vast sun-baked plains, accompanied by a knowledgeable support team and a herd of camels. In the evenings, you’ll be given a chance to experience the authentic Moroccan lifestyle as you enjoy traditional Berber cuisine, witness breathtaking sunsets, and fall asleep under a blanket of stars. What’s more, you’ll get to experience the bustling city life in both Marrakesh and Ouarzazate before and after the trek.
And it's not a journey you'll embark on alone. St Catherine's will be with you every step of the way. The charity will be on hand to help you with your fundraising and training, and will host regular events before your trip so you can meet and get to know your fellow trekkers.
