Peterkin’s Simon walks for charity
Taking part in Hong Kong Oxfam Trail Walk
Peterkin’s Group Managing Director Simon Blacker is amongst a group of four taking part in the gruelling 100km Hong Kong Oxfam Trail walk.
The event takes place on 16 November with the Peterkin team – known as Team Indigo - planning on completing the walk in under 24 hours.
Oxfam continues to be on the forefront of humanitarian crises. There are sadly too many ongoing in the world, but one especially in Asia is the awful brutality in Myanmar which forced almost a million Rohingya people to leave their homes to constricted makeshift camps in Bangladesh. Oxfam is struggling with resources in the face of severe monsoon rains. Flooding, landslides (the camps are on side of a hill) overflowing latrines and contaminated water will lead to inevitable outbreak of disease and potential loss of life. Oxfam has done a mountain of work in providing hygiene, sanitation and clean water delivery in the camps but need funds to continue the operation and save lives.
Simon tells us “Sponsorship of Team Indigo in aid of Oxfam will be very much appreciated, and hopefully we will be able to share pictures of grinning and exhausted faces at the finish. We are aiming to raise $30,000 HKD ($4,000 USD) between the four of us. Where possible we would prefer Option-1 direct donations to our team Hong Kong HSBC account, alternatively please kindly use Option-2 Oxfam Team Sponsorship Page."
