Vietnam Challenge for Isabel Hospice 

Hot on the heels of returning from Iceland where as part of a team she trekked up a volcano and across glaciers and ice fields, Isabel Hospice Fundraising Co-ordinator, Jordan Russell, is putting the call out for adventurers to join the next overseas fundraising challenge for the local charity. 

“I’m really excited that we are able to put on two different versions of this Vietnam trek each one with its own challenges. One group are going to be trekking in the hill tribe region of Sapa, whilst another group will be scaling the highest point in Vietnam, Mount Fansipan. 

Both groups will really get the feel of the country during their time there and they will see some stunning scenery. However, this isn’t going to be a walk in the park! Both of the treks are described as challenging, with the trek up Mount Fansipan being the most difficult, however a good level of fitness and a positive attitude will go a long way for both. We are recruiting trekkers now for the 2016 challenge as each person will need to raise a minimum sponsorship, and so by starting sooner rather than later, this makes the fundraising easier.”
