Belper woman's Peru trek to raise funds

A Belper woman will trek across Peru to raise funds for a mental health charity.

Sara Burden, of King Street, needs to raise 3,000 in order to take part in the trek in September which will raise funds for the Mental Health Foundation.

Sara does volunteer work with people with mental health problems and also runs an art group.

She will hold an art auction at The Little Gallery on Bridge Street between February 7 and 21 and is looking for businesses to sponsor her.

She said: "The trek is seven days across the Andes. We will trek for eight or nine hours a day and will train for 16 weeks."
