CoppaFeel! founder on how YOU can join Corrie star Brooke Vincent and YouTuber Giovanna Fletcher in the Himalayas for fundraising trek

I AM so excited that I can finally announce where we will be heading on our next Fabulous Challenge.

We are off to the Himalayas in October for what will be a very special trip for CoppaFeel’s tenth birthday.

The awesome Giovanna Fletcher, of writing, YouTube and general loveliness fame, is once again leading the trek and has roped in the ever-so-delightful Corrie actress Brooke Vincent.

The best bit is YOU CAN GO WITH THEM. One hundred lucky folks will get to experience the madness of Delhi and then head to the beauty of the Indian Himalayas on a five-day trek that I have been told will “challenge you mentally and physically”.

This unique expedition combines awesome Himalayan trekking with team games and celebrations – because we don’t do birthdays by half.

The challenge begins and ends at the heart of the world’s highest mountain range in Dharamsala, with breathtaking views of the extraordinary snow-capped peaks, magnificent woodland trails and beautiful pine forests. Doesn’t it sound GREAT?

We are so excited to be doing another trek in collaboration with Fabulous. We have been running these adventures since 2014, have raised a total of £833,300 and would love to break the £1million barrier with this one.

There is of course a fundraising target we ask all our trekkers to hit which we know is not easy, but I believe anything worth doing rarely is.

Plus you get to be super creative with your fundraising which will in turn bring about new experiences.

I hope that I will get to join everyone on this trek too, although it’s incredibly hard for me to plan so far ahead.

I try to avoid major disappointment by not committing to things too far in the future for fear of having to cancel – a form of self-preservation, if you will.

But it’s an amazing goal to set for myself and, if I can, I bloody well will.

Still, this isn’t about me, it’s about you. So if you fancy an adventure of a lifetime where you get to make friends for life – past trekkers will testify to that – explore and see incredible sights, step out of your comfort zone and truly challenge yourself, then you should totally apply.

Plus, on top of all that you get to help CoppaFeel! educate more people about breast cancer so that we can get closer to ensuring everyone gets the early diagnosis they deserve. So, what ya waiting for?

To take part, you need to be physically fit and willing to raise at least £2,995 for CoppaFeel. Head to coppafeel.org/fabulous now to fill in your details and to read T&Cs – applications close on Sunday, February 24, so be quick.
