Currently the total funds raised for Leeds Mencap from our Sahara Desert trek stands at £6,613.00. A big thank you to all who have donated!
As one final fundraising push to close the gap on their £10,000 fundraising target, Jonathan and David will be LIVE on BBC Radio Leeds at 5:40PM and then LIVE on the Look North sofa at 6:30PM tonight, along with the CEO of the charity Leeds Mencap.
They will be sharing stories about their Sahara Desert charity trek and the great work Leeds Mencap provide to the local community for adults and children with learning difficulties.
