Charnwood Molecular is sponsoring a trek across the Sahara Desert in aid of St Lukes Hospice in Winsford, Cheshire.

Charnwood Molecular - Lucy Tunstall

Keele University PhD student, Lucy Tunstall, whose work on the development of novel anti-malarials is co-funded by Charnwood Molecular, is undertaking the trek as part of a fund-raising effort for St Lukes Hospice in Winsford. Lucy is a keen fund raiser and this is just the latest of a series of challenges that she has undertaken to raise funds for the hospice, the most recent of which was a sky dive, raising over £400.

The Saharan trek takes place in difficult terrain and covers a 50km stretch of the desert. Lucy is aiming to achieve a fund raising target of £1600 for the trek, which takes place in October 2017.

“I am so pleased that Charnwood Molecular has decided to sponsor me in my efforts in the Sahara” she said. “I’m really looking forward to the challenge – it will be great to take a little chemistry with me to Africa!” she added.
