Kate's 50th Birthday Charity Trek
for the Alzheimer's Society
Kate will be undertaking a Great Wall of China Trek for The Alzheimer’s Society - a 50 mile challenging route along sections of this amazing ‘Wonder of the World’ incorporating some tough climbs including the famous ‘Heaven’s Ladder’ (200 steps up a cliff face!). Kate will be departing for Beijing, China, on 6th September 2019, 5 weeks after her 50th birthday.
Kate Coldham is one of the directors and also the main organiser, supporter and facilitator of all things ArtWorks. Since setting up ArtWorks in 2012 and subsequently the permanent gallery in Chapel Square, she has assisted over 80 artists . A familiar face at the ArtWorks gallery, Kate will be celebrating her 50th birthday in July 2019 - and in true ‘Kate’ style, she has planned this epic adventure to mark the occasion.
“Turning 50 feels like a landmark moment in my life. My 40’s have been an interesting and, at times, tough decade with many major changes and achievements. I want to celebrate the start of a new decade by challenging myself - proving that I still can!
I love travel and the Great Wall has always been on my ‘bucket list’ of must see places. Combining it with a significant charity appeal for a cause close to my heart seems like the perfect option.”
