Jamie's Charity Challenge Edinburgh student, Jamie Haynes, is planning to achieve his lifetime ambition. Next month he's flying to Nepal with five friends
to begin a three-week trek of the Himalayas. Jamie,20, is aiming to raise money for young disabled people at the same time. His younger sister, Jackie, who is paralyzed and in a wheelchair, is the inspiration for Jamie's trip. There's a charity called Go Getters. It helps young people who are seriously ill or who are disabled, like my sister. I always enjoy traveling abroad, especially on unusual adventures, so it's a great way to combine a holiday with helping people,'says Jamie, a Sociology student at Edinburgh University. Jamie is raising Ł5,000 before he goes. A small part of the money pays for his flight and the rest goes to Go-Getters, which organizes holidays and other leisure activities for young disabled people. The charity hopes to uses the money to buy a new minibus, specialty designed for people in wheelchairs. Jamie is amazed by the response of other students to his unusual idea. 'They all want to help me. It's fantastic! Next week all the other students in may group are going to pay us to keep quiet! Some of the lecturers are going to do it as well- for some of them it's going to very difficult!' At the moment, Jamie is training for the trip. He goes to the gym every morning, goes running every evening and goes swimming four times a week. Jamie is also following a special high-protein diet of fish, fruit and eggs. 'We're going to walk trough the high Himalayas for about seven hours every day for almost three weeks, so we need to be very fit! We're all really excited about it, but I also feel nervous. It's certainly a big challenge for all of us.' And what does Jackie think of Jamie's plans? 'It's a great idea but a little bit crazy too! I'm so proud that Jamie and his friends want to help!'
