A week in Peru

Peru has always been my favourite destination to visit, and having travelled there previously I was really...

Hospital heroes needed

Hospital heroes needed

In the UK we are exceptionally lucky to have an army of exceptional heroes working in our NHS every day. The teams of doctors, nurses and support staff work incredibly hard and deliver care of the highest possible standard 24 hours a day, every day. Last year we put a call out asking for these hospital heroes to join us and travel to Kenya for 2 weeks to work alongside the heroes working in very different and often difficult circumstances....

Peru Taught Me A Lot

Peru Taught Me A Lot

As you can imagine, a career in accountancy, day-to-day, doesn’t fit into this outdoorsy lifestyle. At 18 I started working...
