Oman Mountain Trek 2020

Oman

£380 registration fee, £3295 minimum sponsorship

Mountain illustrationExplore the incredible mountains and coastline of Oman on this spectacular mountain trek in support of NSPCC.  Follow ancient footpaths as you hike through the Omani mountains, taking in breath-taking canyons and wadis on this amazing 4 day trek abroad.

The journey will test and challenge you as you climb to the summit of Jebel Qihwi (1,800m) but will be worth it for the amazing views of the mountains inland and the crystal clear blue sea. You’ll camp each night, giving you the chance to watch the sun set over the mountains before getting some much needed sleep.

How will I reach my fundraising target?

We're here to help you with your fundraising, so don't panic. Karen, who was on the Great Wall of China Trek in October 2017, lets us in on how she smashed her fundraising target and raised over £3,000.

"Once we had made the decision to book in for the trek I set up an online giving page. Next, I wrote down a list of ways to raise money, I then selected what I thought was achievable. I arranged one quiz evening and two coffee mornings. I then began asking local shops and small businesses to donate prizes for raffles and got some teddies for name the teddy competitions.

Then I decided to ring around supermarkets to ask if I could stand in the foyer collecting. Many said no but Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Lidl said yes and were really helpful. On the stand I did another small raffle and name the teddy which attracted people.At the coffee morning I raised quite a lot of money by playing higher and lower (a la Bruce Forsyth), charging £1 a go. I also made a lucky dip of sweets for the children, and another raffle of cakes that people had donated.

Lastly I made ribbons and asked larger businesses to sponsor me if I had their names on the ribbons, this raised a lot. Some people asked for their children’s names which I thought was lovely."

How you’ll make a difference

Abuse changes childhoods, but so can we. By taking part in a fundraising event, your donation will make sure that when a child needs a helping hand, we’re there.

We help children across the UK to rebuild their lives and we’re finding ways to prevent abuse from ruining any more.
