TRAVEL
industry charity Just a Drop is embarking on its biggest-ever fundraising event
with a sponsored walk of the Inca Trail.

Organisers
are searching for 60 industry volunteers to take part in the trek, which will
take place between April 30 and May 9 next year, finishing at the lost city of
Machu Picchu.

Just
a Drop founder and World Travel Market group exhibition director Fiona Jeffery
said: “This is a chance for all those deskbound executives to get out of their
chairs and get healthy, as well as raise money for a really good industry
cause.”

The
trip is being organised by the Salisbury-based experienced adventure and
charity walk specialist tour company Discover Adventure, and the cost to take
part is a minimum £2,500.

Walkers
will be encouraged to contact friends, colleagues, contacts, suppliers and
customers for sponsorship. The cost includes flights, transfers, accommodation,
meals and porters on the trail.

Organisers
hope to bring participants together for a briefing next January. Places will be
offered on a first-come, first-served basis and their application needs to be

accompanied
with a £250 non-refundable deposit no later than December 1.

Money
raised will go towards providing clean water and sanitation programmes for
children and their families around the world.

The
launch of the Just a Drop Inca Trail Walk coincides with the launch of a
website at www.justadrop.org which offers regularly updated information about
the charity, its work and supporters.
