The Jewellery Cut is teaming up with Twin magazine and Whistles to raise money for Trekstock, a charity that gets young adults in their 20s and 30s moving again when cancer puts their lives on hold.
The Jewellery Cut co-founder Rachael Taylor will be joining a charity trek to the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco, organised by fashion store Whistles and Twin magazine. The trek is aiming to raise £60,000 for Trekstock, which will go towards a mix of practical and social programmes that aim to support young people through and beyond their experiences with cancer.
The trekkers – a mix of 30 high fliers in the media and fashion industries – will ascend to the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains in just six days this May, climbing up 4,000ft. This challenge is no walk in the park, with long days, undulating terrain, heavy packs and making camp by sunset.
“Trekstock does brilliant work with people who are struck down by cancer at a time in their lives when they should be their most active, so I’m delighted to be joining Whistles and Twin to help them raise funds for this very worthwhile cause,” said Taylor, who is raising money through JustGiving. “The trek is going to be a huge personal challenge, but I’m looking forward to it. For those of us who are able, we take the ability to walk for granted every day. I’m going to trek into the Atlas Mountains because I can, and do it for all the people who cannot. And hopefully, the money we raise will enable Trekstock to get just some of those people back on their feet.”
The Whistles x Twin x Trekstock challenge to the Atlas Mountains is aiming to raise a total of £60,000 for charity.
