Hospice fundraiser urges supporters to join him in trekking Mount Toubkal for St Barnabas

2nd October 2019

Mike Pastor, St Barnabas Hospice Challenge Fundraiser, will be trekking Mount Toubkal, Morocco on 7th – 11th October 2020 and he is rallying St Barnabas supporters to join him for this adventure.

Mount Toubkal is North Africa’s highest mountain at 4,167m tall and is situated in the heart of Toubkal National Park just south of Marrakech.

The trip consists of three days trekking and allows plenty of time to take in the unique culture of Morocco. The ascent up Mount Toubkal is a great introduction to mountaineering adventure and it is an excellent experience for those with good health and fitness.

As you ascend, you’ll hike through juniper forests and alpine meadows. The views from the summit are spectacular; you will experience stunning 360-degree panoramic views that extend as far as the Sahara Desert.

Mike said:

The Toubkal Trek promises to be a once in a lifetime challenge. We will experience the most beautiful views on our ascent to the summit, and we can really immerse ourselves into the culture with village visits and hearty, locally-cooked meals. Come and join the team, let’s climb a mountain together!”

If you would like to join Mike in taking part in the Toubkal Trek, you might be surprised at the low registration fees.

Mike said:

“It will only cost you £99 to register for the Toubkal Trek, we will cover the rest: flights, camping, food, guides and any support that you will need. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £1,650 for the Hospice.

“With a whole year to fundraise, you can easily smash this target and have a lot of fun with it in the process. I will be there every step of the way to support you with fundraising materials, ideas, advice and training.”

“Thanks to the courage and kindness of people like you, we are able to continue to provide dignified and compassionate end-of-life care to those who need it in Lincolnshire. By taking part in a challenge like this you are making memories and making a difference to the hospice care St Barnabas can provide.”
