DERBYSHIRE hospice, Treetops Hospice, has announced dates for an exciting mountain trek in Morrocco next year and is seeking adventurers to sign up for their charity challenge.
The five-day trek, from 12 to 16 October 2022, includes a climb to the top of North Africa’s highest peak, Mount Toubkal – four times higher than Mt Snowdon.
Mike Pastor, Treetops events relationship manager, said:
“After being unable to travel abroad for such a long time, we’re thrilled to be offering people the chance to join ‘Team Treetops’ and tackle this exciting overseas challenge.
“It’s not a challenge for the faint-hearted as we’ll be ascending 4,167m in rocky terrain, but from the top of Mount Toubkal, the views over the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert are stunning.
“It’s a real once-in-a-lifetime experience that you can complete over a long weekend. You’ll take away some incredible memories as well as the knowledge that you’ve helped Treetops Hospice care for even more patients in the local community.”
As well as climbing up Mount Toubkal, Team Treetops will be walking amongst Berber villages, camping under the stars, enjoying home-cooked Moroccan meals and have time to explore the colourful city of Marrakech.
Team members are being asked to each raise £1,650, which will cover the trekking challenge costs, as well as raise valuable funds for the hospice.
The team will also have the opportunity to meet and train together before the challenge.
“The Toubkal trek is an opportunity to make some incredible memories while making a huge difference to local people going through the toughest of times.
“In the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Do something incredible: come and join the team and let’s climb a mountain together!”
