Why we need your help

WE MADE IT!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us in our epic adventure. It has been quite a week...

If you haven't given already, and fancy donating something we'd be very very grateful. We've said it before, but every single pound really does make a huge difference to animals in need. 

Thanks again x

We are taking on a unique challenge that involves spending five days sledding through the rolling highlands and deep forests of Lapland for an experience we will never forget.

Our charity challenge is to sled 250km from Norway, into Sweden through untouched nature, in order to finish at the world famous Ice Hotel (the original!) in Jukkasjarvi! Our challenge begins in the Arctic city of Tromso, where we make our way to the Dog Sled Centre in order to meet our husky companions. After meeting and greeting our furry friends, we then dive straight into the spirit of adventure and spend our first night in a traditional Lavvo, surrounding the roaring fire.

This is no ordinary charity challenge – we will be required to erect our own tents, cook for ourselves and fulfil all camping duties with the equipment provided. In addition to looking after ourselves, we’ll also be responsible for looking after our teams of huskies – be assured, this is a true, “hands on” wilderness challenge!

And we will be doing this in temperatures reaching -20 degrees!!

The dogs' welfare is paramount and the company we are going with take this very seriously so we will be pushing our own sleds at many points.

We are funding the challenge ourselves, but are looking to raise funds for our place of work, Oak Tree Animals’ Charity. Please consider making a donation – every single pound will go directly towards supporting animals in our local community.

Huge thanks in advance for any support you may be able to give.
