A MARCH resident is heading to China on Friday to trek the Great Wall and support a charity that makes a positive difference to young people with disadvantaged lives.

Harry Baird is raising money for Springboard Charity, which gives disadvantaged youngsters opportunities for a career in hospitality.

Harry said: “As a resident in March, I have recognised the needs for our young local people to be provided with opportunities to make a career for themselves.

“My aim for this trek is to ensure March can be recognised for its commitment to the development of the young, regardless of personal situations.”

Harry is joining a group to mark Springboard’s 21st birthday and will be trekking for six days, walking a minimum of ten miles a day along treacherous paths with deep ravines at the side.
