A young lady from Weymouth has been selected to take part in an expedition to Ecuador in July, where she will experience a whole range of challenges and activities including canoeing the upper reaches of the Amazon and climbing several of the Andean peaks.
The Dorset Expeditionary Society (DES) is organising the expedition and she will be one of a group of 32. The DES is a voluntary organisation and a registered charity founded in 1986 to promote leadership and personal development opportunities for young people through adventure, expeditions and exploration.
An amazing opportunity for this young lady who has raised her own funds with cake sales and Harbour Swims. We are delighted to contribute towards her travel expenses and will look forward to hearing all about her experience.
