In April 2012, I went on a two-week school trekking trip to Morocco. Part of the challenge beforehand was earning all the money to pay for it myself. I did this over many months by selling plants which I had grown from bulbs, having a fundraising tea party and car boot sale, doing a 29-mile sponsored walk and lots of odd jobs. The trip itself involved trekking in the Atlas mountains and camping most nights, with a day of white-water rafting at the end. We also spent a day on a charitable project, repainting the walls at a school and playing with the children. One of the things I enjoyed most about the trip was playing impromptu games of football with the Moroccan children we encountered in the evenings, using a stuffed sock as a football.
