Chosen charities for 2012

Dear friends, I have recently been featured in an article in ‘The Daily Telegraph‘ newspaper, it is a well written article by Ben Fogle, someone who I have followed very closely and hold in high regard. After reading the article I did however find there to be one error that I would like to make clear. The article states that I am raising money for Help for Hero’s, and although this is a great and worthy charity this is not the case and I will not be raising money for this cause on this occasion. My chosen charities for 2012 were the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust and Noahs Ark children Hospice. Thank you all again for your continued support and apologies for any confusion that may have arisen as a result of this.

    I read your recent article in the DT and am very supportive of all you are doing and in particular supporting the young to participate in outdoor activities. I am a trustee of Berkshire Outdoor Education Trust ( BOET ) and we sponsor under-privileged children, particular from inner cities, to attend outdoor activity Centres. I and my co-trustees wondered if you would perhaps consider becoming a Patron of BOET and if so I would be very pleased to provide you with more information on our activities and sponsorships.

    Good luck on your South Pole trip

  2. Dwayne, I’m following your travels with interest, after reading Ben Fogle’s article. Good luck for the South Pole!

    I’d like to add that if you’ve never seen another black person on Dartmoor, it’s because you and I have been there on different days. I love the outdoors, have a passion for trekking and have a dream not too dissimilar to yours, mine being to see more women of colour outdoors. This not only because I’m a woman, but also because mothers influence the activities their children undertake, at least in the earlier years.

    I have no idea where to start to get this off the ground, so any ideas/suggestions welcome.

    Best regards
