Taking to the hills

toubkal_01.jpgMartina Madden and Anne-Marie Connolly (Peter McVerry Trust fundraisers, pictured here) are taking on a charity challenge this October to raise money for homeless services in Dublin. They are going to trek across Morocco for five days, with the summit of Mount Toubkal as their goal. Mount Toubkal is the highest mountain in North Africa – more than 4,000 metres high! And the good news is that they are currently looking for other brave souls to join them. Fellow-trekkers are promised a fascinating journey – meeting the local Berber people, eating traditional Moroccan cuisine, and visiting the exotic markets of Marrakech – and spectacular views of the Sahara from the mountain top. Registration for the event closes on 5th May, and the trek itself takes place 1st-5th October. For more information, visit or telephone Peter McVerry Trust Fundraising Office 01-8230776.
