AN ADVENTUROUS student has raised more than £3,300 for a breast cancer charity by completing a gruelling trek along the Great Wall of China.
Rebecca Gregory, 20, from Ellesmere Port, took part in the nine-day challenge earlier this month to raise much-needed funds for Breast Cancer Campaign.
The University of Central Lancashire fashion student had always dreamt about visiting the historic landmark and was inspired to take part in the trek after seeing her nan battle breast cancer when she was younger.
Rebecca’s great aunt also recently died from the disease.
She said: “Taking part in the China trek was fantastic.
“I enjoyed every part of the challenge and it’s something I will remember forever. The views were breathtaking.
“It was hard at times, but I just remembered what I was doing it for and that helped me through.
“I’m really proud to have raised so much money for Breast Cancer Campaign and hopefully this will help them get a step closer to beating breast cancer.”
Rebecca, who works part-time at Sainsbury’s in Ellesmere Port, completed the trek with her store colleague Laura Turford, 24, from Deeside.
Having returned home she is already planning her next challenge and is considering signing up to the charity trek to Machu Picchu, Peru, next year.
