Aussie trip Ed hits Outback for Acorns

Worcester Builder Ed James was today heading across the Australian Outback in an Acorns to Ayers Rock sponsored journey to help local life limited children.

Ed is funding his 16,000 journey so every penny raised goes to help Acorns children in the Three Counties.

He expects to have to strip down his vehicle after negotiating the muddy outback during an Australian winter.

Acorns Community Fundraiser Mandie Fitzgerald, who saw him off last month from Acorns for the Three Counties in Worcester, said: His solo Acorns to Ayers Rock sponsored journey will raise vital funds to help Acorns look after 207 local life limited children. Most of the money to pay for their care comes from fundraising, so we need everyone to support us.

Ed is heading across the Outback within striking distance of Ayers Rock, toward the climax of his incredible trek across the globe for Acorns.

The families of our life limited children at Acorns are so grateful for his kindness. We hope everyone will support his fundraising to help the youngsters we care for, as it costs 750 a day per child, most of which has to be raised from the dedication of wonderful members of the community like him.
