However, the charity needs your help for this event to be a success! You can do this by signing up for The Trek and encourage and share with your friends, families and colleagues too.

It cost £10 per adult to register (children under the age of 16 free) and all Trekkers will receive a free Olive Tree T-shirt, a map of the route, and support with setting up your own JustGiving page. All funds raised will go towards offering therapies and emotional support to people have been affected by cancer.

If walking is not an option for you, then you can still support the #olivetreetrek, by simply sharing the event, by word of mouth.
