Survive the wild to raise funds for county charity

Anu Shukla 18th Jan, 2017

FANS of Bear Grylls can live the dream when they register for a two-day Peak District adventure to help raise funds for charity.

The Survive the Wild event has been launched by the brain injury association Headway, and takes place from May 13 to 14.

Adrenalin junkies will have a chance to trek, rock, scramble, abseil, cliff jump and negotiate through the tunnels and caves of the Dark Peak.

Lovers of the great outdoors will also be in their element as they get up-close and personal with nature by camping in the wild and surviving on food sourced from the land.

Participants can expect to learn a whole host of new skills including basic navigation, shelter building and potentially life-saving techniques.

The challenge is organised by Headway Worcestershire in collaboration with sister charities in Birmingham, Solihull and Shropshire, and aims to raise awareness and funds for specialist brain injury services.

Fundraising manager at Headway Birmingham and Solihull Julie Wedgbury said: “We’re all about encouraging people to live life to the full and what better way than challenging yourself to an adventure like this.

To register and secure a place on this adventure of a lifetime, visit www.headway-bs.org.uk to pay a £30 non-refundable deposit by visiting.
