My story

[p][b][i]In July this year, Oliver and myself will be lucky enough to be joining a small group of intrepid travellers under the guidance and support of an amazing lady, Jane Keough, as we set out on a very special challenge to canoe 90 Km up the Zambezi River in Africa.[/i][/b][/p][p]Travelling with only the bare essentials we will kayak by day and camp by night under the stars along with the diverse range of Zambia’s natural wildlife.[/p][p]During our trip Oliver will be providing his professional Podiatry services to the local communities, participating in foot clinics helping with foot care and education to the local people, an issue so important [/p][p]All of this will be to help support CLZ’s environmental education programme this year which includes combat poaching of wildlife and natural resource exploitation in and around the Lower Zambezi National Park. CLZ also wishes to provide learners and ultimately communities with the tools to find their own solutions to environmental degradation and improving livelihoods in these remote rural areas.[/p][p]The trip will be self funded to make sure all of the total raised goes to the causes that really need it. The money will also help help pioneer an impressive range of successful conservation initiatives across more than 20 countries, increasing vital protection for over 10 million acres of land and more than 40 different threatened species.[/p][p]We would love any help and donations as we raise money for this amazing cause and we will of course keep you updated on our progress as we push ourselves through this incredible experience.[/p][p][b][i]Thank you from the both of us for your help and support![/i][/b][/p][p][b][i]Matt & Ollie[/i][/b][/p]
