Spend five days trekking through the primary jungle, encountering varied terrain; including paddy fields, rubber plantations, fruit orchards, mountain ridges, and rivers.

You will camp in deep jungle and learn survival skills such as making traps, building shelter and identifying edible fruits and foods. The terrain will be challenging but the landscape will be incredible, spurring you on to complete your challenge.

You will finish off your time in Borneo at the world-famous Sepilok orang-utan sanctuary where you will have the chance to see and learn about these amazing animals, as they are slowly reintegrated into the wild. You’ll even have a chance to walk through the reserve and see the orang-utans up close!

Why should you put on your trekking shoes for Helen & Douglas House?

As a charity, we need to find £3 million each year to keep our hospice open. Almost all of this comes from people like you, and every donation makes a huge difference to the help we can offer to terminally ill children and their families.

We provide medical, emotional and practical support helping families deal with the implications of living with a child who will die prematurely, so they can make the most of their time together.
