India Dalai Lama Trek for RUH patients

9th August 2019, 4:14pm | By Maddy Jones | Event Date : 20191002

Calling all walking-enthusiasts and one-of-a-kind experience-seekers! The charity for the Royal United Hospitals (RUH) Bath, The Forever Friends Appeal, is looking for local people to join their 2020 trekking team – who will exlore the spiritual home of the Dalai Lama in India next September. Beginning in Dharamsala (the heart of the Tibetan community), you’ll trek through the beautiful Indian Himalayas, rhododendron forests and high up in alpine meadows surrounded by snow-capped peaks, passing through traditional Hindu settlements, temples and Buddhist Monasteries. You’ll also have the chance to visit the Taj Mahal… and all in the knowledge that every step you take will support patients and their families back home. Plus, new for this year, the group will spend a day volunteering at a school along the route, an amazing opportunity to give back to the local community.

 

The charity is hosting an Information Evening at the RUH on Wednesday 2nd October from 6:30-8pm. This will feature an evening of presentations about fundraising and the trek itself, including a Q&A session with a Global Adventure Challenges trek leader, as well as a chance to hear about previous trekkers’ experiences. To find out more, please visit www.foreverfriendsappeal.co.uk or contact Maddy on 01225 825823 / maddy.jones@nhs.net.
