Team Nettleton’s story

This October we (Rob and Jan) will be undertaking a 5-day trek through South Africa’s highest mountain range, the Drakensberg - the Dragon’s Mountains. It will set some challenges beyond our experience of hill walking or other treks. For starters, there’s the 30 metre steel ladder to ascend the rock escarpment! Then there’s the camping and (ahem) toilet facilities; then the weather – late winter snows or early summer thunderstorms are possible, although we hope to dodge between them.


The rewards should be the spectacle of a high mountain amphitheatre of wilderness, topped by Cathedral Peak, at over 3000 metres.


However, the trip won’t be complete with the trek. We’re visiting South Africa to support an organisation close to our hearts called NewDay United. This is what NewDay United says:


We are motivated to bring hope, help and healing to the people of Africa by the words of Jesus:


‘I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.’ John 10:10.


In the following 10 days we will be seeing how this happens. We’ll share with you some of our experiences of the trek along with our encounters in the Cape Town area of some amazing people and projects that are making this a reality in situations far more challenging than a few days of hiking.


We hope that you will partner with us and NewDay United by sponsoring our trek. All donations will be to NewDay United.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

NewDay United

True to the spirit of “Ubuntu” (an ancient African word meaning ‘humanity to others’) where emphasis is placed on community influencing the benefit of the greater, NewDay United collaborates with organisations that are already changing their world. We work with churches, businesses, community-based organisations and individuals.

We are committed to championing the champions, enabling them to make a difference and become change agents in their communities, their nation and beyond.

 

This is already happening increasingly through

1. Educational programmes to see people of all ages equipped to thrive.

2. The development of entrepreneurial skills through mentoring and internships.

3. Holistic health services working at grassroots offering professional, confidential and affordable health care.

4. Scholarships for those who are future leaders and pioneers

There are many more opportunities for which we don’t have the necessary funding, but would love to support!

 LET YOUR STORY BE PART OF A NEW DAY!

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
