Our very own Jessica Brown is trekking across the Sahara Desert in November to help raise funds for The Link Charitable Trust. Jess has worked with The LCT since August 2020 as a Children’s Wellbeing Worker and is passionate about mental health support.
She will be trekking during the day and camping during the night over four days. The Trek will be challenging as she will be walking through the Desert carrying her belongings in a large rucksack during the day where the temperatures are around 30’C and she will be camping during the night where the temperature will drop to around -10’C. The terrain of the desert which is very sandy and undulating will also make the trek challenging.
Jess said ‘Mental health support is important to me, being able to support others through tough times in their life, supporting children, adults and families to see hope and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The Link Charitable Trust provides this support on a daily basis for the people in our local area and without the help of donations they would not be able to continue to provide this much needed service.’
