To Hel and Back
A challenge for charity…
Late in March 2010, Tom Picton and Carl James left to drive from Buckinghamshire, England, to Die Hel near Cape Town in South Africa, then attempt to drive back home. On 7th April 2011 we completed the challenge, having travelling 31,000miles and through 38 countries.
From the savanah to the sahara, dropping to the lowest point on the African landmass, crossing full blown mountain ranges with vitually non existent roads before inching our way through mosquito infested swamps – this really is the ultimate travelling challenge.
A circumnavigation of Africa, the hardest way round we could have found, but we hope to leave a lasting legacy through helping Link Ethiopia improve sports provision in Northern Ethiopia. We do not hide that 11 months travelling abroad makes us very lucky, but hope to use the trip as a way of raising money for two amazing charities Link Ethiopia and Alzheimer’s Research Trust UK.
We hope you find the website interesting and would like to help us support the life changing work of both of these charities by donating using the secure Paypal icon on this page. Please note that you do not need a paypal account to donate using the paypal icon.
