25 Peaks for 25 Years!

Our 25 peak hero - Laura Sewell
In 2008 and 2009 Money for Madagascar supporter Laura Sewell travelled thousands of miles to work as a volunteer at Akany Avoko, a children's home near to Antananarivo supported by Money for Madagascar.

As if this weren't enough she has now decided to help celebrate our 25th anniversary year by setting herself another incredible challenge. On the weekend of the 28th and 29th of May Laura will be taking part in a sponsored 25 peak hiking challenge in the Lake District. That's one peak for every year of our existence - and all within the space of one weekend.

Please support her by making a secure donation, at Whether it be 10p or £10 per peak, every little helps!

I'm sure you'll join us in wishing her the very best of luck for what will be an extremely demanding 48 hours. Go for it Laura!!!
