Irish rugby player and Bóthar Northern Ireland ambassador, Rory Best, today launched the charity’s latest appeal, encouraging local people to do their bit for charity and register for the Achill Trek to help raise vital funds for families living in the developing world.
The all-inclusive residential walking event will take place from 14 – 16 August on Achill Island, off the coast of County Mayo.
Donations from the trek will be used by the aid organisation to support the building of a creamery in Rwanda, as well as providing livestock to help create sustainable living environments for people who could not otherwise survive.
The three day fundraising event offers a range of specially tailored walks for beginners as well as treks for the more experienced and adventurous hill climbers. Walkers will enjoy stunning views of the surrounding countryside, including the breath-taking Keem Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
Commenting on the launch of the appeal, Bóthar NI ambassador Rory Best said: “I’d like to encourage everyone to sign up for the Achill trek. The more people that get involved the more money Bóthar will be able to raise for the creamery in Rwanda. Whether you join the trek for one day or for all three days, it’s the taking part that counts!”
