New Beginnings hike
Join us for our annual fundraising hike. This year we will be taking on the challenge of England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike in the Lake District guided by Utrek.
This year will be a joint fundraiser for New Beginnings and supporting Yemeni orphans for Rafah International. Each orphan will benefit from: Essential foodstuffs for their family, an annual medical examination for the orphan and any other medical expenses, clothing, a school bag with stationary, school fees and school transport fees, prizes for academic success, a yearly outing with other orphans and their families, and weekly pocket money. Over 250 orphans are currently being cared for and more are in need.
The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Myself and the caretaker of an orphan will be in Heaven like this,” and he held his two fingers together. (Al-Bukhari)

Scafell Pike is the highest and the most prominent mountain in England, at an elevation of 978 metres above sea level. It is located in the Lake District National Park, in Cumbria.
Transport from Oldham to the Lake District and back is included in the cost.
You will be given a link to set up a Just Giving fundraising page on behalf of New Beginnings. This will make it easier for you to fundraise and get your message across.
The best way is to contact family and friends directly.
Children are welcome to attend. If they need transport, then they will have to register separately. We advise that only children who are experienced hikers attend.
If you cancel for any reason, we cannot give a refund. We encourage you to try and find someone else to take your space but please inform us ASAP if you need to cancel as coach spaces are limited.
Make sure that you are prepared for any eventuality of bad weather. A good pair of hiking boots or trainers and sticks come in handy. Don’t carry heavy rucksacks as they will slow you down and make the hike more difficult for you.
