Cape Wrath - Aman

Why we need your help

As some of you will know, I'm the trustee of a small charity which helps people with drug and alcohol addiction issues through exercise. We run 4 classes a week and take them away once a year (last year we went to the Lake District). I donate my time to help manage and fundraise for the charity. You can see more here:

http://www.homestraight.org.uk/

This year, we're also taking a few members to Cape Wrath. ALL MONEY RAISED HERE WILL PAY FOR THE MEMBER'S TRIPS. I AM PAYING MY OWN.

Cape Wrath is one of Britan's iconic cornerstones where the north and west coasts of Scotland meet.   There are stunning & spectactular views with dramatic coastlines, the expansive  Atlantic Ocean and a vast moorland wilderness all in one place.  There is no land mass between here and the Arctic,  Orkney can be seen to the north east and the Westen Isles viewed to the south west.

It's quiet and desolate. The terrain is harsh but a group of Home Straight members will be spending 3 nights wild camping in July 2018. It won't be easy. There will need to be a lot of training and preparation if they are going to survive the trip. Each member will be on a strict training regime with targets if they are going to to be able to attend. It'll take discipline and hard work!

The members are raising money to help fund the expedtion but this may not cover all our costs and that's before we take any shortfalls into account. Your support in helping make this trip work will be appreciated by our members, giving them a target to work to and helping them in the process. Any excess will fund the general running costs for the charity.

Finally, I will be going and sleeping in a tent and eating freeze dried food! By the way, the usual pack weight will be 10kg but mine has somehow made it to 25kg.

Please help! You can donate here and see how we're getting to the target. We'll claim the Gift Aid and handle all the finances.
