Previous Events

Summer Trip to Seica Mare - and Sponsored Walk

In June 2012 a small team will visit Seica Mare because it's Annual Reports time again for all the 23 sponsored families, and time for generally reviewing all other programmes.

It's a lovely visit as the team gets to meet so many children who have been sponsored by people in Chard and in other areas too. The children are always so pleased to see us as really value their sponsorship and support which enables them to go to school or receive much needed medical treatment.

We hope to have lots of exciting news and a report will be ready by the end of June.

The team will also be doing the 80 kilometer TRANSYLVANNIA TREKATHON. This means walking at least 10 miles a day for 5 or 6 days. During the walk they will be checking out the amazing biodiversity in the area, dodging fierce sheepdogs, hopefully spotting eagles and bear tracks, bathing sore feet in mountain streams .... and on arrival at the village destinations will be able to see traditional crafts such as charcoal making, barrel making, cheese making ( hopefully picnicking with the shepherds after they milk their sheep) and bread making in an outside bread oven.

There are also many historically valued fortified churches en route and the whole area is protected by Natura2000 as a jewel in the crown for European biodiversity and cultural interest.

This is a new venture for the project - we are interested in protecting and caring for the land and helping the peasant farmers who are involved in work, but also we are hoping to offer the walk to sixth form students next year and any who wish to make a pilgrimage through this stunning countryside and visit the many churches there, three of which are UNESCO world heritage sites.

This walk is being done as a sponsored walk for the charity and we would be grateful for sponsorship - the team are all older folk (except on in her 50's!) so a gallant effort!

If you want to sponsor us please contact us through the website and we will get a form to you. Thank you for your ongoing support.
