Charitable Travel: Escape the every day

- Advertisement -

THE second issue of Charitable Traveller came out at the start of October as the UK entered autumn proper and the prospect of not just winter, but winter with COVID-19 suddenly loomed, but we hope this new edition offers a slice of escapism along with coverage of important causes and charities.

Great news for givers

Check out our news pages for good news from the worlds of charity and travel, including the launch of Charitable Shopping. Just like Charitable Travel, this new platform is a social enterprise which allows you to shop from some of your favourite brands and give back to charity at the same time.

Armchair travel

Get ready to travel far and wide in this issue. Join Lauren Jarvis as she explores the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla just before the UK goes into lockdown. She takes in the wild side of this Caribbean island, as she meets a flamingo called Martin and kayaks in darkness only to reveal a dramatically colourful aquatic world beneath the waves

Get inspired to jet off somewhere glamorous with a look at some of the most exotic James Bond film locations in the franchise’s history; see our round-up of Japan’s greenest places, ranging from a 1,000-year-old cedar forest to a land of smoking volcanoes, before taking a whistle-stop tour of Copenhagen, hopping from a royal palace to a hippy commune.

Turn the page and jump from the city to the savannah with a story about a safari in South Africa’s Sabi Sands game reserve, where every day is a drama and the stars of the show aren’t necessarily the creatures you’d imagine…

From one grassland to another, you can finish your armchair adventure by landing in the Canadian prairies. Explore the little-known rural province of Saskatchewan with its fascinating history and stunning landscapes, just made for social distancing.

Causes that matter

We tackle some hot topics in this issue, with some important advice from youth suicide prevention charity PAPYRUS on what to say to someone who tells you they are contemplating the unthinkable, plus a look at five charities who are helping to combat the rising issue of loneliness.

We put the spotlight on the problem of plastic – another issue which is being exacerbated by the pandemic – and take a look at the charities working towards a future where packaging doesn’t threaten the environment.

In this edition you can meet Kenyon Shankie, a filmmaker who works with charity My Life Films to document the lives of those living with dementia and restore dignity as well as memories. Alessandra Alonso, the founder of social enterprise Women in Travel, an organisation committed to addressing the gender imbalance in the industry. And reader Debbie Hodgson, who reveals the very personal reason why she chooses to donate to her local charity-funded pre-school.
