Charity couple’s Great Wall of China bid

12:20pm Saturday 5th July 2014

A COUPLE are in training for the adventure of a lifetime – trekking the Great Wall of China.

Ahmed Khan, and fiance Lauren Flack, both 24, hope to raise £4,000 for children’s charity the NSPCC.

They are now training every other day to build up their stamina ready for the 45k trek over five days in October, starting at Badaling, near Beijing.

This month, the couple, of London Road, Bicester, will head to the Lake District for a hill walking weekend.

Mr Khan, a store manager at Savoy Taylors Guild at Bicester Village, said: “I am very excited about the trek and think its going to be a unique life experience that doesn’t come around too often. The fact that I’m going to be sharing that experience with my fiance makes it all the more special.’’
