The Orwell Challenge & The Bus Shelter Ipswich
In a little over a month we will be taking on a hiking marathon – The Orwell Walk. This will be no doubt test our stamina and is perfect long distance training for our summit of Mt.Toubkal in September.
We’re so fortunate to be able to make a difference to local charities and projects through fundraising; and it didn’t take us long to choose our local project to support for this event. The hard work, dedication, and vision that has been demonstrated by the awesome Bus Shelter Ipswich is nothing short of incredible and deserves as much publicity as it can get!
Gareth Brenland – founder of the project has been quoted as “Taking a Leap of Faith” by quitting his day job to fulfil this projects potential…just take a second to let that sink in…here’s a guy, a normal everyday guy, with the same family / financial / 21st century pressures as the rest of us schmucks and he’s QUIT HIS DAY JOB for a higher purpose. Man…that’s some inspirational stuff right there. In a nutshell the project is developing an old double decker bus into a safe and secure place for homeless people to sleep – now thats a very ‘in a nutshell’ version, so i urge you to check their story out here!
So we’re calling on YOU to support this mind blowing project and everything it stands for.
Go ahead and check out their crowdfunder page – even just to gain a better understanding of their journey so far…I heard a saying recently and that’s
“if you wont donate a penny out of a pound; don’t kid yourself, you’ll never donate that 10,000 out of 1,000,000 if you win the lotto.”
We can all reach for that penny…
