Virtual Sponsored Walk from Durban to Rorke’s Drift
During July 2021, cadets from Devon ACF will embark on a challenging White Rhino expedition to South Africa to experience the historic, social, cultural, and conservational aspects of the continent, working with local communities, hands on research and the rehabilitation of wildlife.
During the expedition, cadets will travel the 162 Km (100 miles) from Durban to the historic 1879 Rorke’s Drift battlefield where 150 British and colonial troops successfully defended the missionary station from 3,000 – 4,000 warriors of the Zulu Empire.
To enable all the cadets be able to afford this experience, we are asked them to embark on a sponsored walk to raise funds. They will be walking 100 miles (the distance they will be covering in Africa) around their local areas during the month of August.
Please give what you can to add to the total already donated to them by services, civilian organisations and businesses.
