TEAMWORK MAKES THE SCREAM WORK ON THE TRANSYLVANIAN TREK!
Cats Protection is looking for intrepid fundraisers to challenge themselves and raise money for cats on a thrilling new fundraising event.
The Transylvanian Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime, six-day walk through Romania, including a climb across the Transylvanian alps and a stop at Count Dracula’s famous castle!
Participants will take in small mountain villages where they will get to know the locals and their culture and stay in local guesthouses, while tackling the rugged wilderness and the region’s impressive mountain ranges which are 2,200 metres above sea level.
There will also be a visit to King’s Rock National Park, home to the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project which shelters wolves, lynx and bears. In addition, there will be an optional one-day extension to the Putna-Vrancea Natural Park to meet biologists and wildlife experts who are seeking to protect the ecology of the lynx species.
The charity is looking for people to join this challenging adventure which takes place on 6-11 September 2022. The registration fee is £250 and there’s a minimum sponsorship pledge of £2,975 which would cover the funding of a new cat pen.
With trekking of up to eight hours per day, participants will need to be fit and healthy and ideally have undertaken some training.
This trip is being organised for Cats Protection by Charity Challenge (ATOL 6546). Cats Protection is acting as an agent for Charity Challenge.
