Enham Trust are thrilled to announce that we are looking for adventurous individuals to undertake the Freedom Trail Trek. This challenge is taking part from 4th – 9th July 2019 and has been carefully selected to celebrate the beautiful village of Enham Alamein turning 100 years old in 2019. Enham Trust began to support injured servicemen returning from the First World War.

The Freedom Trail Trek is one of the escape routes in the Pyrenees used by allied servicemen and Jewish refugees from Nazi occupied France during WW2. The 4-day trek offers spectacular mountain scenery and an insight into the hardships and bravery of all those who attempted to escape.

This stunning but demanding trek in the Pyrenees starts in France, following the route of the ’Chemin de la Liberté’. The route provides some unforgettable landscapes and experiences; taking you through beech forests, past mountain lakes and along rocky ridges. You explore remote trails ascending to 2522 metres before descending into Spain.

It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced trekker or if you are a beginner, all abilities are encouraged to take part!


There are two options that you can choose between to take part in The Freedom Trail trek:

Sponsorship – meaning you fund the entire trip through fundraising with the help of our dedicated Fundraising Team. If you choose this option you will be asked to pay a registration fee of £295 to confirm your place and then pledge to raise £2010.

Self-Funded – meaning you pay for the whole trip yourself and then any fundraising you do on top comes straight to Enham Trust. Self-funders will need to pay a total of £1,300 which includes your registration fee of £295.

Whether you choose the sponsorship or self-funded route, you will receive the following as part of your package, organised by Different Travel:

  • Full board (hotel and meals)
  • Flights (Inc. taxes)
  • Access to First Aid trained staff

Groups are capped at 25 people, with only 10 people needed for the challenge to go ahead! You will get to mingle with likeminded people make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime, whilst fundraising for our cause.
