Zara, and travel agents from some of our surrounding branches headed for the great outdoors to raise funds for the Naomi House & Jacksplace.
This is a Hampshire based charity providing expert hospice care to life-limited children and young people.
Amy, Audrey and Hayley from Hays Travel Winchester, Chris from Eastleigh, Jordan from Boscombe joined Zara and Poppy from our branch and together completed a 20 mile 'I'm a celebrity, get me out of here' inspired trek through the New Forest.
As well as rationing ourselves to rice and beans, building a shelter and bedding down on the forest floor for the night, we initiated our own Bush Tucker style challenges. Some of those included tasting Jelly Beans with not-so-tasty flavours such as rotten eggs, grass clippings, dog food and mouldy cheese!
It is an amazing feeling knowing we have managed to raise vital funds, which will provide a service to hundreds of life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families from across Central Southern England.
So far our branches have raised a total of £370.
