Trek Sahara! - East Cheshire Hospice

Trek Sahara!

A once in a lifetime opportunity to trek the Moroccan Sahara & raise money for the Hospice

Our previous overseas treks have been a huge success, with the participants returning from their adventures with so many stories to tell and an enormous feeling of achievement. This year we are taking on the magnificent Moroccan Sahara!

Trek over 50km in the Moroccan Sahara and get hands on at a community project in Marrakech.

Scale sand dunes, battle scorching temperatures, camp under the stars and make a difference for East Cheshire Hospice in 2021.

The Challenge

Your trip begins with a journey across stunning Moroccan landscapes to the Sahara where you will commence four days of trekking over towering sand dunes, across vast sun-baked plains and camping each night under the starry sky. After completing your trek you will return to Marrakech  and spend two days assisting a community project with a range of hands-on tasks such as refurbishment, decorating and gardening to make a positive impact for the local community.

The Cost

There is a £325 registration fee to pay at the time of booking to secure your place. You are then required to fundraise a minimum of £1,990 for East Cheshire Hospice. Support and fundraising ideas will be provided by staff to help you reach, and even exceed this target. A self-funded option is also available.
