A peruvian adventure

Emily Lane, 17, contacted a number of north Essex lodges for assistance in raising £5,000 to join an expedition to the Peruvian rainforest with the British Exploring Society. Vic Hodson, Charity Steward for Blackwater Lodge, No. 1977, heard Emily’s pleas. The lodge agreed to help, adding an extra £50 if she would tell them of her experience afterwards. Her stories included spiders as big as dinner plates, eight-foot snakes and eating insects.
