USPCA launch Inaugural Trekking Challenge

USPCA Launch Inaugural Trekking Challenge

The USPCA ‘Sri Lanka Trek’ will take place in March 2018. Its purpose is to raise funds vital to the charitable work of the USPCA.

Founded in 1836, The Ulster Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (USPCA) is the second oldest Animal Welfare Charity in the world. For an unbroken 181 years this charity has remained true to its founder’s vision, the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Relief of their Suffering. The USPCA is non-selective in the species it assists, our unique commitment to protect All animals.

Each year many of NI’s animals suffer as a result of neglect, ignorance and cruelty, with your help, we can alleviate that suffering. The USPCA is a registered charity and receives no financial support from government. To maintain and expand our charitable services we Trek Sri Lanka Invite rely on fundraising activities and voluntary donations for the finance needed.

The ‘Sri Lanka Trek’ is a means of supporting the work of a worthy charity whilst providing a once in a lifetime opportunity for animals lovers to experience life in an island that is truly a jewel of the Indian Ocean. Behind the dazzling beauty of Sri Lanka’s world famous beaches is a land of lush jungle, spice gardens, ancient Buddhist temples and an abundance of wildlife – all of which makes for a unique trekking experience. The journey will take participants through local villages, past paddy fields, across rivers and into the mountains where you will tackle the challenge of Adam’s Peak (2243m).
