WINTER WALKING WITH HOLLY BUDGE

1st - 3rd February 2019

This is a very special winter walking weekend. In a small group of 12, you’ll get two epic days of Welsh mountain walking with Holly and two other experienced Mountain Leaders, plus some additional scrambling opportunities if conditions allow. Along the way you’ll get to chat to Holly, learn some practical winter walking skills and spend time with a like-minded, welcoming group of explorers. On top of all that, on Saturday night Holly will inspire you with a talk about her incredible adventures and you can ask her all your burning questions!

EC adventures are informal, friendly and great fun! They’re made up of solo travellers, couples and small sets of friends with ages typically ranging from mid 20s to mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome. EC adventures are a great way to meet like-minded people in a safe, welcoming and fun environment. For this particular adventure we’d recommend you have some hillwalking experience.

GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT

Ongoing...

Holly was quite literally on top of the world when she summited Mount Everest to raise global awareness of the devastating impact of the elephant ivory trade and of her award-winning campaign, How Many Elephants. She will be attempting her third Guinness World Record to build the largest paper mache structure to beat the current record of 3.82m. The largest recorded African bull elephant was measured at 3.96m so it makes perfect sense for Holly to build an elephant made entirely in paper mache, to raise awareness of the African elephant crisis, attempt a new world record and raise funds for anti poaching projects.

“The paper mache elephant idea was inspired by my passion for design and conservation. I wanted to create a meaningful piece of art that had a strong message and big impact. I am humbled by the level of support from local businesses and individuals who have supported the campaign so far. Lots of people want to help a worthwhile cause.”
