Charity Challenge Team Member Profile – Hazel Thompson

By 6 years ago
Categories Cape Town
Hi! I’m Hazel, I’m 26 and from Surrey, England.
I’m volunteering in Cape Town for 10 weeks, at the Ikhayalethemba Village orphanage, and Nceduluntu Educare Centre. I am a qualified physiotherapist, and having worked for five years, I felt I wanted to take on a new challenge whilst doing something worthwhile.
When I heard about the charity challenge, I jumped at the chance to take part. I have always wanted to do something and it will be amazing to be able to contribute towards raising money which will go directly into the projects that I am working on. I am thoroughly enjoying my time and the children are incredible. The money we raise will make such a difference to them. The challenge is going to be very tough, but totally worth it, to raise the money for such a worthwhile cause. In the four weeks that I have been here, I can already see how much difference this fundraiser will make to the children’s future. I am looking forward to celebrating at the finish line, on top of Table Mountain, after a painstaking five days.
A big thank you to everyone who has sponsored me and for all your support!
