A mother and daughter from Marsh Gibbon will trek across 60kmof Chinese history in aid of The Children’s Society.
Lynne Jones, aged 62, and her daughter Eve, 31, who now lives in London, signed up for the challenge which takes place in April 2016, and are now fundraising to raise £2,850 for the charity.
Eve is a keen horse rider and Lynne, originally from the Welsh Valleys, already takes a good hike in her stride, often walking long distances with her husband at weekends.
The pair also have very busy working lives with Lynne juggling roles as a practice manager at a GP surgery in Banbury, a magistrate and running a management consultancy with her husband.
Eve is acting picture editor for fashion magazine Tatler.
Lynne said: “I’ve always supported The Children’s Society and trekked through Peru for the charity in the year 2000. The Children’s Society has been close to my heart for many years and I am very proud to be completing this journey for them.”
Eve said: “I’m very close to my mum and I wouldn’t be doing this trek without her. It’s rare for us to be able to spend so much time together and this is really special to her. I’m glad to have my mum to share this experience with.””
There are places available on the trek in April 2016. See childrenssociety.org.uk/china
