All money raised will be donated towards Katie’s trek in aid of Porchlight. Porchlight help people who have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to. Some are homeless, others are struggling to cope with the pressures in their lives and need support to keep on track. Working across Kent and the south east, Porchlight help vulnerable and isolated people get support with their mental health, housing, education and employment. They provide children, young people and adults with the advice, guidance and skills to live independently in the future, play an active role in their local community and fulfil their potential.

The challenge will take place in the mountainous Gunung Leuser National Park, one of the only places in the world where you can still see Sumatran orang-utans in the wild. Gibbons, hornbills, Thomas leaf monkeys, macaques, sun bears and the elusive Sumatran tiger.

During the challenge Katie will be:
– Trekking for around 5-7 hours per day, covering approximately 45kms over 5 days.
– Carrying all of her jungle gear on my back throughout each day.
– Battling the heat and humidity of the jungle.
– Sleeping in a shelter with the rest of the group, in the jungle environment.
– Attempting steep climbs and descents on muddy slopes, with the help of the occasional tree branch and ropes.
