And they're off!!

28th April 2019

Millstream Coach Park, Salisbury - 8.45am, Saturday April 27th.

The Stars Appeal's Great Wall of China trekkers have their bags and walking boots ready to make the trip to South Asia, ahead of taking on the challenge we've been waiting for!

A year of preparation, training, fundraising and getting hold of visas all comes down to this.
