Yeovil Express: Ilminster woman holds family day ahead of Great Wall of China charity trek Ilminster woman holds family day ahead of Great Wall of China charity trek

AN intrepid explorer who will walk the Great Wall of China to raise money for a cause close to her heart is holding a fun day this weekend.

Emilee Rolls, 22, of Ilminster, has started training ahead of a 90-mile trek of the wall, which will take six days to complete.

The former Swanmead School student, who looks after elderly people for Somerset Care, will run a fun day at Donyatt Bowling Club with pony rides, live music, bouncy castles, stalls, food and drink on Saturday from 2pm.

Emilee’s great-uncle suffered from Alzheimer’s and she hopes to raise £3,100 from the challenge, which would help The Alzheimer’s Society charity pay for 100 people to attend a Singing for the Brain session.

She said: “I wanted to do a challenge that was completely different from what other people do and I knew to raise money I had to do something that is not easy.”

Entry is £1.50 before 7pm and £3 afterwards. To sponsor Emilee or for more information call 07891-454548.
