Nino Bacon

3 Peaks Challenge, June 2018

Nino completed the challenge of hiking the UK’s three highest mountains (Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis) in 22 hours and 50 minutes!

She says “The world we all are living in is very important to me and I believe we all have some responsibility to look after and protect it. Therefore preserving nature with its living creatures regardless big or small is very close to my heart, this is why I am raising money for this amazing charity  – World Land Trust!”

 

 

Lucinda Steer

Bungee Jump, May 2018

Lucinda decided to do a terrifying bungee jump in aid of World Land Trust. She raised an impressive amount for the Buy an Acre programme, and her total was generously matched by her employer.

Lucinda told us, “It was definitely the scariest thing I have done but so worth it to be able to support the wonderful work of the World Land Trust.”

Tory Collins

Virgin London Marathon, April 2018

This was Tory’s first marathon, and by completing it she achieved a lifelong dream. “I felt so excited to be running,” she told us. “The atmosphere and support from the crowds was incredible along the whole route, it was the hottest marathon ever and certainly tough to run.

“I managed to complete the distance without stopping and felt thrilled to collect my medal.  My own cheering squad were amazing – I am sending love and thanks to my children Ava and George, my husband Paul and Hal, Cinead, Mum, Dad and Sean. World Land Trust please keep protecting our planet for all nature for the future!”

Congratulations Tory!

Amie Frederick

Mini-triathlon, October 2017

Amie chose to fundraise for WLT because she cares deeply for wildlife, and says “WLT buys land for animals to run freely again. I want to be a conservationist when I grow up to help animals. Animal’s habitats are precious without them the animals will become endangered or extinct.

“I feel tired just thinking about doing a mini triathlon but I feel very happy to be raising money.”
