Cris Langton, a Huddersfield resident, needs local support to raise funds for her up and coming sponsored trek to the Indian Himalayas this May, in aid of international animal welfare charity The Donkey Sanctuary.
Cris is taking part in the 14 day trip to India to raise funds for The Donkey Sanctuary’s work overseas to alleviate the suffering of sick and injured working donkeys and mules.
The trek will lead Cris and 10 other walkers through the spectacular Dhauladhar range, and finishes with a visit to the charity’s Ahmedabad project to see the veterinary clinic and mobile teams in action.
Cris says “Having owned donkeys for 13 years and seen first-hand the wonderful work of The Donkey Sanctuary, I am thrilled to be taking part in this trek. It will allow me to raise funds for the charity whilst also fulfilling a lifelong ambition to visit India. The funds raised from this trek will not only improve the welfare of working donkeys throughout the world but also the lives of people who rely on them to provide basic human needs, such as food and water.”
