Lesley's Charity Challenge

Thursday, 8th June 2017

Our colleague, Lesley Hammam will be undertaking two huge charity challenges in August and September and hiking 200km to raise money for a fantastic charity Animal Care in Egypt (ACE) based in Luxor, Egypt where Lesley lives and works for Riverside Foods suppliers of premium coated chicken products.

Lesley’s first mission is the South Coast Challenge on the 26th August, hiking 100km from Eastbourne to Arundel with stunning views along coastal paths and the South Downs passing Beachy Head and the 7 Sisters.

Part two is the Thames Path Challenge on the 9th September and another 100km hike from Putney Bridge to Henley with beautiful scenery steeped in history.

Lesley is taking on this massive hiking challenge for Animal Care in Egypt (ACE) a charity dedicated to helping stop the suffering of thousands of animals in the poorest communities of Luxor by providing free veterinary care and education. Alongside providing free veterinary treatment, ACE use and teach preventative methods, as well as educate children and adults on care and welfare of animals. ACE makes a real difference to the lives of animals and people in and around Luxor where the charity’s work secures the livelihoods of people in poor communities who are so reliant on their animals. Actor, Martin Clunes, has been a patron of ACE since 2011 when he visited the charity in Luxor.
