A Journey for Change: SRG Service Response Group’s Trek to Petra for The Albion Foundation

In the heart of the Sandwell Community, The Albion Foundation shines as a beacon of hope and support, offering a plethora of educational and sporting opportunities to people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds. From dementia and Alzheimer’s support groups, to disability sports sessions, educational initiatives, and the Hawthorns Hub, aimed at combating loneliness and isolation, the Foundation’s work is a testament to the power of community and the difference the Albion Foundation can make when we come together.

As part of SRG Service Response Group’s ongoing commitment to making a measurable difference in the communities we serve, one of our founding directors Spiro Marcetic is embarking on an extraordinary challenge to support The Albion Foundation.
This October, he’s not just taking steps; he’s trekking through history, nature, and the limits of our endurance for a cause that touches lives in deeply meaningful ways.

The Challenge: A Trek Through Time

From the 5th to the 12th of October 2024, the journey will take him and other fund raisers along the breath-taking scenery of the Jordan Trail, culminating in the ancient sandstone city of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its stunning beauty and historical significance. This five-day trek covers over 72 kilometres of exhilarating, rugged landscapes, through deep canyons and gorges, demanding the utmost from each participant.

Camping under the stars, they’ll traverse the same paths that have been trod for thousands of years, each step bringing us closer to understanding the perseverance that defines the human spirit and the importance of the work The Albion Foundation does back home.

Join Us on This Journey

Jonathan Ward, Head of Partnerships, Events & Communications at The Albion Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm for the challenge: “After the great success of the Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu challenges, we’re delighted to continue our partnership with Charity Challenge with our Trek to Petra. We’re inviting supporters to experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with us, while raising crucial funds for The Albion Foundation.”

This trek is more than just a physical challenge; it’s a journey of the heart, aimed at raising funds and awareness for a Foundation that stands as a pillar of support and empowerment within the Sandwell Community. Every step we take, every breath-taking view we witness, and every challenge we overcome on this journey will contribute to the continuation and expansion of the vital services provided by The Albion Foundation.

Your support can make a real difference. Whether through direct donations, spreading the word, or even joining the trek yourself, every effort counts towards providing educational and sporting chances to those who need them most. Let’s come together to make this challenge a success, for the benefit of our community and the many lives touched by The Albion Foundation.
