In life you can have many loves, I realised fairly early on, at the age of 8, that Cinema was one of mine. I remember my very first introduction, by way of a flickering black and white movie, to Tarzan, Jane and Cheetah.
Through my first love, I met and was captured by Dance and Music, at the age of 13 Fred and Ginger were to captivate me with their wonderful film “ Flying down to Rio”, this in turn opened my eyes to the vistas of South America and introduced me to a life long passion.
Don’t ask me why South America has such a pull on my heart strings, I have no idea, I was simply drawn to the look of Rio de Janeiro, decades later I still think Rio is one of the most stunning cities I have ever visited, I took my daughter there for her 21 birthday.
Some time in the seventies I first heard of a Lost City, which had been discovered by an American, the city had a peculiar name which I could barely pronounce, being named Machu Picchu.
Over the years Machu Picchu became something of a life’s ambition, all my family and friends know of my fascination with Machu Picchu and wanting to travel there.
As we all know tragedy can strike at any time, very sadly this was the case in my family, my niece lost her twins at 5 months, it was this tragedy that gave me the impetus to do something for Charity, but not just any Charity, it had to be one associated with Child Birth and Babies.
I saw Action Medical Research were offering a Trek to Machu Picchu by way of fundraising for their Charity and knew finally, this was exactly what I was looking for.
The time is drawing near when I can achieve my life’s ambition, not only by way of visiting Machu Picchu, but doing so in spectacular fashion, by trekking my way over the valleys and mountains to reach its most fabulous peaks and raising money for Action Medical Research at the same time.
Action Medical Research is a local based Charity, in Horsham, they have been saving Children’s lives for nearly 60 years, being dedicated and determined to stop suffering caused by way of disease and disability in babies and young children.
To enable me to help Action Medical Research, I need your help, my target is £3,200,00 please help me to reach my target and achieve a life’s ambition.
Any contribution you make will help this deserving Charity, please visit my Sponsorship page:-
