We have just received a text message fom Graeme Quar.  He is at the top of Ras Dashen, Ethiopia’s highest mountain!

As you all know, Grame is taking part in a  trek to the summit of 4,550 metre Ras Dashen to mark the 25th anniversary of the Send A Cow Charity.  Graeme is one of the small team making the ascent, and has set himself the ambitious target of raising £100 for each of the charity’s 25 years – £2,500.

To date, Graeme has raised almost £2,300 (including Gift Aid): it is not too late (hint!) for you to make a donation: http://www.justgiving.com/trekgraeme

Graeme’s trek for Send A Cow

October 19th, 2013

As many of you will know, we’re long-term supporters of agricultural development charity Send a Cow. Graeme has been one of its Ambassadors for over 10 years, and has visited projects in Rwanda, Lesotho and Kenya to see its life-changing work in some of the world’s most disadvantaged communities.

To mark its 25th anniversary in 2013, the charity is organising a trek to the summit of Ethiopia’s highest mountain, Ras Dashen – at just under 15,000 feet (4,550 metres), the tenth-highest peak in Africa. Graeme is one of the small team making the ascent, and has set himself the ambitious target of raising £100 for each of the charity’s 25 years – £2,500.

Graeme’s been training all summer for his 10-day adventure, which will involve walking for up to 10 hours a day. He’s setting off on 30 October, so you still have plenty of time to make your donation to this fantastic cause. There’s a JustGiving page for online pledges at http://www.justgiving.com/trekgraeme – alternatively, please call in at the office, or post your donation to our Fareham address.
