We are now over half way in our UK event season and we thought you’d like to know the latest from our recent events.  We still have Just Bike, Oxfam Trail Trekker Ireland and Maggies Night hike all up and coming so we can’t quite relax just yet.  We have jotted down some feedback from the two Barclays events in Manchester and London raising funds for UNICEF and the Capgemini Wild Challenge for the Prince’s Trust.

Additional seats on our China Challenge in April 2010

Due to huge demand we have managed to secure some more seats on our Great Wall of China Challenge in April 2010.

Our China trek offers a truly unique experience. Not only is it a chance to visit one of the world’s most impressive historical sites but also, as a result of our local contacts, it offers a rare opportunity to trek and camp in a remote part of rural China and to experience local life in its most unspoilt state. In order to maximise the opportunities for interaction and learning about the local history and culture, a team of local translators support all our treks in China.  Join us now on this amazing charity challenge.

Two cycle events this weekend with ATD

Across the Divide has a busy weekend planned.

Tomorrow sees the start of the London to Paris bike ride with Visa – who are fundraising for NSPCC.  They cycle over 300 miles in just 4 days but what an amazing trip if not an exhausting one.  They will start in the centre of London, cycle through the rolling Kent countryside, across the channel, along quiet French roads and into the heart of Paris finishing at the Eiffel Tower.  Why not join us on this event next year?

Then on Saturday sees the NSPCC once again with a cycle event in Buckinghamshire – the Big Bike Ride  A stunning cycle event through picturesque countryside with the choice of taking part in a 25km, 50km or 75km route.  Why not join them in Sussex next weekend?

Comments From Just Walk 2009

We had such a fantastic time at the weekend on Just Walk here are just a few of the comments trickling in:

To date our walkers have raised £9868 so should get to the £10K mark which we are absolutely thrilled about.They all had a great day and some looked very happy by the photos, ending up in a most acceptable pub congratulating themselves on their efforts.  Caroline Brookes at TreeHouse charity

Every one of the Just Walk Team made me feel special all through the event – it was as though I was the only person that mattered to them.  Stevie Parker

2009 Just Walk a huge success | limited time only 10% off all registration fees

Saturday saw the third successful Just Walk  take place in the South Downs, West Sussex.  The one-day walking challenge saw over 700 people walking 10, 20, 40 or 60 kilometres fundraise for a charity of choice.

The event was opened by Olympic medal winner and keen athlete, Acer Nethercott.  Acer said, “Just Walk is a wonderful event. It’s fabulous to see so many people out in the open air, raising funds for their chosen charity. I hope to take part myself next year!”

Across the Divide began Just Walk as a result of continued requests from charities wanting to get involved in fundraising walks, but unable to invest time and money into their own events. To date, Just Walk has raised over £1 million for over 200 charities.

Gemma Phillips, UK Events Co-ordinator at Across the Divide says, “The event was a great success. It was our biggest year yet with a fantastic turn out on a beautiful day. The walk was tough in places but we had some very happy walkers crossing the finish line. Here’s to Just Walk 2010.”

 The next Just Walk event will be taking place on 15 May 2010 and for a limited time only we are offering 10% off all registrations fees – so join us now.
