I am the Project Manager of FCV Dorcas and can see the importance of raising awareness and funds for small projects like ours that do so much with so little. I have worked for this charity for nearly three years and am in awe of the volunteers, trustees and committee members who work tirelessly to ensure we can continue to provide frontline services to isolated elderly and disabled residents of Islington. I am no professional walker, but I have sturdy calves, a love of mountain air and mind-blowing views and lots of motivation to raise funds for a charity I care deeply about. See our website:

Event details

Northern GR20- the toughest trail in Europe

Many people have the impression that Islington is a very prosperous borough, in reality an area of great contrasts where many people live in deprivation and poverty. According to the 2015 Index of Multiple Deprivation, Islington was the 26th most deprived borough in the country and is the 14th most deprived borough nationally on the measure of income deprivation affecting older people (, 2016). At FCV Dorcas we believe no one should be alone. They support isolated older people living in Central and South Islington, with the sole aim to enhance their quality of life.
I am going to hike for 5 days along the Northern part of the 'toughest trail in Europe', with my tent and a water bottle, stopping at hikers huts along the way. I am sure at some points I will feel quite alone myself, which will be good motivation and reminder of why it is so important to keep organisations like this going.
