Team Fairburn cracks the Sahara

Oct 15, 2018

IMG_8924He’s done it! Daniel Fairburn has completed two marathons in scorching heat across the Sahara to raise much needed funds for Farm Africa.

Joined by Fairburn’s production manager Egle Kalinauskaite, Daniel braved the 40 degree Moroccan heat and lots of blisters over the weekend to tackle the challenge.

Team Fairburn’s fundraising total now stands at over £21,000 which means they are well on their way to beating the £35,000 Daniel raised for the charity when he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2014.

A big thank you to new gold sponsor Moba and silver sponsor Premier Nutrition. Also to sponsors Vencomatic Group, Conexpak, Sheard Packaging, Sodesa and Hendrix Genetics
