Chance to trek the Great Wall of China

A CHARITY is offering people the chance to trek the Great Wall of China this October.

The Meningitis Trust is looking for volunteers to sign up before January 27 for its trek from October 12 to 21.

Organiser Sarah Crooks said: “We will give you lots of advice on getting started and provide flights, accommodation and meals.

“In return there are two payment options both requiring a £299 registration fee and pledging to raise the minimum sponsorship.”

The Meningitis Trust relies on the generosity of individuals to continue its work supporting anyone affected by meningitis.

It offers free professional services, as well as raising awareness of the disease and its symptoms.

For more information about the trek, email, visit or call 0845 120 4530.
