Charity chance of a lifetime

THOSE with a taste for foreign climes are being offered the experience of a lifetime for charity.

The Meningitis Trust is seeking participants to take on a fund-raising ten-day trek along the Great Wall of China and through the Black Dragon Paw Park.

Once the trail has been completed, there will be time to visit some of the famous local sites, such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

The trust, which provides support for anyone affected by meningitis and raises awareness of the disease, will provide flights, accommodation and meals for the expedition, as well as advice on getting started.

Anyone signing up will have to pay a £299 registration fee and commit to raising a minimum sponsorship total.

The trip takes place from Friday, October 12 to Sunday, October 21, but registration closes on Friday, January 27.
