Welcome home to Gemma Pearce who raised money for Sea-Changers through a remarkable trek…to Machu Picchu. She has just returned from a challenge of trekking the world famous Inca trail to the sacred ruins of Machu Picchu.
Gemma said; 'The trip was fantastic, it was wonderful how although most of us had never met we all got on really well and helped each other to complete the challenge for the various charities we were supporting. The toughest part was the second day of the trek when we completed the mountain pass known as “dead woman’s pass” at an altitude of over 4200m. The lack of oxygen made climbing really difficult but the views from the top were well worth it. On day 4 we reached our final destination, Machu Picchu. We got our first glimpse of the sacred site after passing though the sun gate, the original entrance used by the Inca people. I can’t even describe my elation at finally achieving my dream of visiting this magical place and having raised money for a brilliant cause in the process.'
Gemma used the trek as an opportunity to raise money for Sea-Changers and to date she had raise a fabulous £1000 for us. We would like to thank Gemma and all her wonderful supporters for doing such a wonderful fundraising job. You really are all Sea-Changers and your money will make a huge difference to UK seas and shores.
