Our Sahara trekker heroes

Claire and Tommy undertook an amazing 100km trek across the Sahara dessert over 5 days, all in aid of Home-Start Herts.

After months of training, the day finally came and with nervous anticipation they boarded their plane to start an adventure of a lifetime.  Their first night was spent in a hotel ready for an early start the next morning to get to their starting point.

The photo's of the trip look amazing and the scenery beautiful, but it was not an easy trek.  With sandstorms, baking sun and very primitive facilities, it was a hard and gruelling challenge.

It was an amazing achievement for both Claire and Tommy we are very proud of them.

They had fantastic support from friends family and colleagues and have raised over £5,000 so far.the trekking team
