Homeless Oxfordshire


Is trekking the Sahara desert on your Bucket List? It should be.


We’ve teamed up with two local homeless charities to take you on the ultimate Bucket List adventure: The Sahara Challenge.  

Over seven days you’ll trek the Sahara desert, leading the Berber way of life; taking in the surreal views of ancient dried up river beds, sand dunes and vast sun-baked plains, and camping out each night under the stars.

Your Berber guides will be with you all the way, teaching you survival tips and cooking your group delicious meals. You’ll end your adventure by volunteering at a homeless project in Marrakesh – making your commitment to standing against homelessness global.

Not only will you have the time of your life, your trek will be life-changing for the people we support. Sponsorship raised will directly support adults here in Oxfordshire, helping them to overcome homelessness.


The details

Dates: 7th-14th November 2020

Why you should trek for us

When someone becomes homeless their life spirals out of control. But thanks to supporters like you, we are here to help people navigate through the chaos. Each night we accommodate 220 people. Alongside the bricks and mortar, we provide the person-centred support clients need to recover from homelessness. For good. And it's all thanks to support from people like you.

Information Evening

On Wednesday 9th October we'll be holding an information evening in central Oxford. If you like the sound of the challenge and want to learn more, we'll be joined by the trek organisers, The Different Travel Company, who'll be able to answer all of your questions.  We can't wait to see you there!


Don't miss out! If you want to make a difference and take a trip of a lifetime, register your interest below:
