Alabaré are offering a group of people a chance to visit Africa and raise much-needed funds for the homeless.

The trip to the south-western African country of Namibia where the fundraiser will embark on a 130-mile jourmey over 13 days will raise funds to support people to overcome the barriers of homelessness, mental ill-health and learning disabilities in order to have a home, health, choice and independence.

Participants will sleep in the desert under a canopy of a million stars, meet local tribes and see rare desert elephants that have specially adapted to living in the Namib.

The trek, led by former SAS Officer Major (retired) Ken Hames MBE, will take them across vast deserts, through deep gorges, and offer the experience of a spectacular natural landscape that has remained unchanged for thousands of years.

Major Hames has led multiple treks through Namibia:

"This trek offers a unique opportunity to meet the tribal people and see the animals in the wild. I am so looking forward to joining Alabaré on this trek and raising much needed funds for homeless and vulnerable Veterans."

All participants taking part on this exclusive trek are expected to raise a minimum of £5,500 for Alabaré’s Homes for Veterans services.

Places are extremely limited so to find out more or to book your place, please visit www.alabareevents.co.uk or call Harvey Taylor on 01722 344485.
