SIGN up for a trip of a lifetime and raise money for a good cause too.
Weldmar Hospicecare Trust is organising a trek in the Sahara desert this October.
All the money raised will go towards helping to look after terminally ill patients.
The event runs from October 17 to 22.
Walkers will be joined by Berber guides and camels. Temperatures will range from 35C during the day and fall to freezing at night. Walkers will enjoy all of their meals out in the desert and will sleep under the stars at night.
The trip is limited to 25 participants and costs £300 to take part, plus minimum sponsorship £1,400 which will go towards Weldmar caring for patients and their families throughout Dorset.
The registration fee includes flights, all transfers and transport in Morocco, accommodation in a three-star hotel on the first and final night, tents and sleeping mats, all meals throughout, local guides and camels.
