Megan Latham
My name is Megan Latham, I live in the village of Tarvin and am a year 10 student at Tarporley High School in Cheshire


I have the opportunity to participate in an expedition to Borneo in 2015. This will be a four week expedition and will include community development work, environmental projects and wildlife conservation. I will be taking part in activities including reforesting areas where the jungle has been destroyed to create a safe haven for the animals that depend on it for survival, finding alternative fuel resources for communities and visiting Sepilok Orang-utan Sanctuary to view Asia's only great ape at close quarters.
This expedition is extremely important to me because I feel that I will acquire and develop many important life skills such as being resourceful, communication and self-confidence.
I am aiming to raise £4000 to meet the costs of this expedition. As part of my fundraising I am producing a PROMO T-SHIRT to be worn at fundraising events and whilst in Borneo. I would like to offer you the opportunity of having your logo printed on my t-shirt in return for a donation of £200.


I will supply photos of me wearing the t-shirt which you could use to show your support for children in the community who wish to help in conservation projects abroad. If you feel unable to contribute to my t-shirt I would be extremely grateful for any donations large or small you may make towards my fundraising and will be issuing a press release on my return from Borneo mentioning any support you may have given me.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read what I have to say.

Travellers of all kinds have used Platts Lane for thousands of years. On foot was the major form of passage but also on horseback, on small carts or in carriages, as well as packhorses and farm animals.In recent times it was even proposed to build a road through this historic place. How could a council imagine this was a good idea?Thankfully, it remains a quiet by-way for walkers, cyclists...
