I have never been to the Sahara Desert before but in March I am going to attempt to walk approx 25-30 km per day, for 10 days, across the rolling sand dunes, desert plateaus, fossil fields and salt flats of the Moroccan Sahara - being led by local Berbers and camping out under the stars (with no creature comforts) - in order to raise money for the EY Foundation and to help create opportunities for young people in the UK who face barriers to employment. I really hope that you will support me in my endeavour. Thank you very much. Chris.
