Van and man needed!

A CHARITY walk needs a driver for a Nepal fundraising trip. But don’t worry you won’t need to drive all the way to Kathmandu.

The helper is needed to support a big group of expats who will be undertaking the so-called ‘Coast to Coast Walk’ from Nerja to Tarifa in September.

The 21-day trip, which covers 430 kilometres, takes place from September 15 to October 5. A van and a man is vital to help with logistical support.

Walk organiser Guy Hunter-Watts told the Olive Press: “The driver who originally offered to help has returned to the UK with his van, so we’re desperately looking for a replacement vehicle.

“This would ideally be a 7 or 8 seater minivan, like a VW transporter or Ford Transit. And if the van were to come with a driver that would be even better.”

As this is a charity walk the organisers aren’t able to pay a wage, but they are offering a small daily allowance for food and accommodation.

If anyone can help please contact Guy Hunter-Watts: [email protected] or phone 616057184

Maybe I should clarify that we’re not necessarily looking for a driver for all 21 days, even though it would be great if we were to find one. Even if you were able to help for 3 or 4 days it would be a great help and it should be a lot of fun, too.
