Night of Adventure charity speaker evening. NEEDS ADVANCE ticket purchase...

The team at the children's charity Hope and Homes for Children have put together another fantastic adventure speak night for 2014. We've been to a few of these and as well as being great fun and really inspirational, all the money raised also goes to a very worthwhile charity.

What
A superb evening that is raising funds for the "Hope and Homes for Children" charity. In essence, a series of world class speakers, World Record holders and adventurers talking about their adventures with the aid of slides.

"Each speaker is limited to just 20 slides to accompany their tales, shown on a huge cinema screen. The challenge is that each slide will automatically scroll forward after just 20 seconds.

Two adventurers, part way through global expeditions, are helping Hope and Homes for Children to organise this event: Emily Chappell and Sarah Outen. Emily is a cycle courier who was named Travel Blogger of the Year at the 2012 British Travel Press Awards. Sarah, meanwhile, is currently attempting to loop the planet using human power. 

The event falls between International Women’s Day on 8 March and Mothering Sunday on 30 March. We are seizing this opportunity to celebrate the current generation of inspirational women explorers and adventurers by featuring an all-female line up."

On the night
We are merely publicising this worthwhile evening so it's not an Outdooraholics run event so all questions do need to go to the organisers please. Graham will also be there on the night - he will be in the bar area from 6:30pm and at 6ft 5, is hard to miss!

The first talk will start at 7pm and the event is expected to finish by 10pm

    Thanks so much for coming everyone and hope that you enjoyed the evening. In total £8,851 was raised for Hope and Homes - which is a superb amount. We will soon be doing our Seven Sisters double charity hike for them too. Watch this space!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
