Riverside Foods employee in bid to raise funds for animal care charity

An employee of Riverside Foods, which supplies coated chicken products, will be undertaking two huge charity challenges in August and September and hiking 200km to raise money for the charity Animal Care in Egypt (ACE) based in Luxor, Egypt.

The first mission for Lesley Hammam, who lives and works in Luxor, is the South Coast Challenge on 26th August, when she will be hiking 100km from Eastbourne to Arundel with stunning views along coastal paths and the South Downs, passing Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters.

Part two is the Thames Path Challenge on 9th September and another 100km hike from Putney Bridge to Henley with beautiful scenery steeped in history.

Lesley is taking on this massive hiking challenge for ACE, a charity dedicated to helping stop the suffering of thousands of animals in the poorest communities of Luxor by providing free veterinary care and education. Alongside providing free veterinary treatment, ACE use and teach preventative methods, as well as educate children and adults on care and welfare of animals. ACE makes a real difference to the lives of animals and people in and around Luxor where the charity’s work secures the livelihoods of people in poor communities who are so reliant on their animals. Actor Martin Clunes has been a patron of ACE since 2011 when he visited the charity in Luxor.
