Bristol based charity Penny Brohn Cancer Care is giving residents the chance of visiting the ancient sights of Cambodia, exploring the countries hills, valleys and jungles before visiting the magnificent Angkor Wat Temple with their exclusive overseas challenge, all to raise funds to help people living with cancer.

To launch its exclusive 2014 trek to North Western Cambodia, the Pill—based charity is holding an Information Evening about the challenge on 23rd January.

Taking place at The Glassboat in central Bristol from 6.00pm – 8.00pm, Pete Robinson, Director of Events for Global Adventure Challenges, will be holding a special talk and presentation about this amazing trek as well as answering any questions from interested trekkers.

On this challenge trekkers will experience stunning scenery, dazzling green rice paddies and Buddhist Temples and the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Angkor Wat Temple whilst helping people to live well with cancer.

Amy Cason, Events and Corporate Manager says: “There is no better way to explore the rich history, beautiful landscapes and friendly culture of Cambodia than this exciting trek. We want 30 people to take on the challenge and in doing so we hope to raise a staggering £50,000 to support local people living with cancer.

“The Information Evening gives people a chance to learn more about the trek but also about Penny Brohn Cancer Care. We are also offering a reduced sign up fee until the 22nd February so now is the time to find out more and sign up!”

The South East Asian adventure has been organised following the charity’s triumphant success of overseas challenges over the past four years which has seen supporters summiting Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, conquering mountain ranges to reach the lost city of Machu Picchu in Peru, trekking along the Great Wall of China and exploring the home of the Dalai Lama in the Himalayan mountains in India.

These challenges have raised almost £200,000 to date.
