Even more donations!

Jenna has raised over $1000 from people she’s met in the desert. It’s a busy time of year in the outback as people from all over the country take advantage of the school holidays to make their Simpson Desert crossing.

Jenna says that about 50 per cent of people that she passes are donating, which is great. Thank you, everyone!

Although she’s got a sore heel, she’s powering along. She expects to be at Big Red, the 40m high dune on the edge of the desert, by lunchtime today. Then, she ‘s meeting family and friends, and MP Bruce Scott, for a BBQ at her final campsite before an easy, flat walk into Birdsville tomorrow. She hopes to be at the Birdsville Hotel in the early afternoon.

If you’re in the area, we’re encouraging as many people as possible to meet Jenna as she walks into town. She’s such an inspirational young woman who has achieved so much over the past 9 months or so and we’d love you to join us as we show her our appreciation.

I’ll keep you updated with her expected time of arrival and will hopefully see you at the pub!
