Join a team of Stars Appeal supporters as we set out on our fundraising challenge along the Great Wall of China, from Saturday 27th April – Monday 6th May 2019.  

Read on to find out more about your adventure of a lifetime. And to get answers to all your questions, and meet fellow potential trekkers, come along to our Trek Information Evening on Thursday 18 January. Just sign up here: https://www.spirefm.co.uk/features/great-wall-of-china-trek.php to get all the details.

 Great Wall of China 1

Stretching 6000km in a dotted line across China, the Great Wall was begun in the 5th Century BC. As it snakes across the mountains it conjures up a sense of history which is difficult to grasp until you have had the opportunity to experience it.

Our trek is very varied, as we pass through woodland and terraced farmland, and follow the contours of the beautiful hills and mountains in remote areas north of Beijing. We follow old sections of the Great Wall, as well as restored sections with smooth flagstones and lots of steps!

This challenge is physically demanding and offers fabulous scenery and a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.

 To take part in this challenge of a lifetime, we ask each trekker to raise at least £1,410 for the Stars Appeal as well as paying their registration fee of £399 (non-refundable). 

You can do this by funding the trip yourself and raising £1,410, or fundraising for all your trip costs as well as your donation, in which case we ask you to raise at least £2,820.
