What’s been your favourite charity challenge (so far)?

I am yet to join a Charity Challenge. I’m still waiting to choose from the chocolate box! I did however do a 2-day Sapa Hill Tribe Trek in Vietnam. The scenery was breath-taking, and I am hoping to convince Charity Challenge to re-introduce it back into the portfolio.

Do you have any challenges left on your bucket list?

All the Challenges we offer but at the top of my bucket list is Trek To Petra.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself…

I have spent time with orphaned baby Orangutans as part of a trip to a rescue & rehabilitation sanctuary in Borneo. They are the cheekiest and smartest mammals.
