This year’s trek will take place in Jordan, starting the Dana Nature Reserve near the Dead Sea and finishing in the ancient city of Petra.
Accompanied by Bedouin guides, the majority of the eight-day trek takes place through the ancient mountain and desert trails. David and his fellow trekkers will spend nights sleeping under the stars in desert camps.
The trek finishes in the stunning red canyons of Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Once the trek has finished and they have had a well-deserved rest, David and team will spend their final day exploring the lost city of Petra, which is carved into the desert mountains.
David’s wish is to raise £5,000 for Jersey Cheshire Home, to enable them to continue with their invaluable work to provide care and support to people living with a range of disabilities including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy, Spina Bifida, Strokes and Head injuries.
David is raising money via JustGiving and the link to his page is: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/david-tupper2
Commenting on his challenge, Managing Director, David Tupper said:
“The walking boots and trowel have been procured, training has been going well and I’m looking forward to the ‘Jordan Desert Trek Challenge’ this weekend.
. For years I have been involved with a variety of Charity work to help a wide range of Charities. For the past three years I and Tupper Loans (TLC Finance) have supported local charity Jersey Cheshire Home and I’m hoping to raise £5,000 to support this incredible local charity who support the disabled. ”
