Between Thursday 2nd June - Sunday 5th June, A small team and I from the ATE Staff body will be daring the challenging routes between each residential center that ATE will be using this summer. Not just one route, but four routes across four days back-to-back. Taking in many contours lines, all off-road routes, and averaging around 20 miles per day, we will be trekking (with around 20kg of weight), along the following routes:
Day 1: Penn Wood - The Poplars (25.6 miles)
Day 2: The Poplars - Bredenbury (23.4 miles)
Day 3: Bredenbury - Moor Park (15.9 miles)
Day 4: Moor Park - Franks place (22.4 miles)
Our chosen charity, ATE The (Active Training & Education) Trust, are an organisation who provide residential summer holiday camps for children aged 8-16 from all over the world. The week, known as a 'Superweek', provides children with the opportunity to truly be children in a comfortable environment where they will never be criticized and always encouraged. It allows children to understand and appreciate many aspects of life such as their surroundings and nature. It gives children the opportunity to develop social skills, make life-long friends, and create memories that will stay with them for a lifetime.
Every year ATE raises funds which allows us to sponsor and pay for a child to be able to go away on one of our residential summer holidays. Sponsored places are allocated to children whose families would not otherwise be able to afford such opportunities; additionally, schools help ATE select children who might gain from the experience socially and emotionally.
