Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2008

If you're in the London area this weekend and are looking for some ideas for attractions then why not check out the Wildlife Photographer of the Year at the Natural History Museum.

The exhibition show cases the very best nature photographs from the top professional and amateur photographers in the world. It costs just £7 and is well worth it. There's also the museum to explore, and no visit is complete without checking out the dinosaurs and the blue whale!

Quest boys take on The Grim Challenge

On 7th December 2008, three fit young men from Brighton will take on all that Mother Nature can throw at them when they run the Grim Challenge in Aldershot.

8 miles of uncompromising mud, ditches, water filled ravines, cargo netting and the biting December chill. Jon, Simon and Andy are running to raise as much money as possible to send children from our projects in Malawi and Peru to School.

£300 – is enough to pay for 5years of secondary education for an orphaned child in the Pen Sulo district in Malawi.

£175 – is enough to pay for 1 year of school for a disadvantage child in the one of the largest shanty towns on the planet in Peru.

To check out how they are doing and to make a donation please visit their just giving page:
