2015 Bedell Tanzania Challenge Launch Night

Trekkers and cyclists are invited to our launch night for the 2015 Bedell Tanzania Challenge, on Thursday 9 October, at Jersey Hospice Care's Education Suite.

The cycle is a route from Moshi at the base of Kilimanjaro, through bush land and savannah, circling the base of Kilimanjaro, riding the Rift Valley and finishing at Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crate National Park. The trek sounds incredible too, trekking through the Crater Highland and Rift Valley, witnessing traditional Masai way of life as well as trekking up close to impressive volcanoes and looking down into crater lakes.

The accommodation will be camping, with high quality tents, put up for you by the local crew who even rig up some sort of showers for you too!

In addition to the cycling and trekking, there is the option of an exciting extension … to climb Mount Kilimanjaro afterwards!

If you want to save the dates, they are 8 – 18 October 2015 (or up to 25 October with the Mount Kilimanjaro extension).

We look forward to welcoming you.

Christmas Volunteers Needed!

With its delightful festive decorations and period charm, 16 New Street is a special place to be at Christmas. Last year around 400 children took advantage of the opportunity to meet Father Christmas, in his traditional pre-20th century green garb, kindly lent to the National Trust by Jersey Heritage – many stating that it was the ‘best Father Christmas ever!’ We plan to repeat this successful event again this year on Saturdays from 29th November until 20th December, but are currently short of kind volunteers to take on the role of Father Christmas. Would you consider assisting us in making this a magical experience for children, and raising some much needed funds for the charity?

In 2013 we also offered visitors the opportunity to purchase piping hot roast chestnuts on Thursday evenings during late night shopping over the Christmas period. We are hoping to do so again this year if we can find some kind volunteers to once again take part; the shop will be open between 4-8pm on Thursdays 27 November – 18th December. Please do let me know if you can help – a period costume would be provided!

Many thanks, Chris Addy, House & Collections Manager, The National Trust for Jersey. E: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it M: 07797-897959
