Fearne & DvO complete Trek to Care for charity

After months of planning and preparation Fearne Cotton and Denise Van Outen, as well as Alexandra Burke, Gabriella Climi and Amanda Byram, made it to Machu Picchu.

They completed their Inca Trail challenge alongside 6 very special VIP women who have all experienced the support and care provided by Breast Cancer Care, the charity for whom they were raising funds.

The Peruvian site is perhaps the most familiar icon of the Inca World and was voted one of the New 7 Wonders of the World in a worldwide Internet poll. The women had to trek up steep inclines, through snow-covered peaks, and over rough terrain in an adventure that saw them reach 14,000ft at the highest point. You can read all about their adventures on their Trek to Care blog. A documentary on their trek will also be shown on ITV in October.

Now, I’m not sure about you, but doing something as arduous and challenging as trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is physically (and mentally) beyond me. However, the six women with the celebs (plus many more women before and since) are recovering from being seriously ill. And that’s why we’re extremely proud to be involved in raising money for such a superb charity, Breast Cancer Care.

So, if you want to show your support for these brave women and a very worthy charity you can donate to Denise and Fearne’s Trek for Breast Cancer Virgin Money Giving page . They’ve already raised an insanely generous £10,000! Or, why not wear your support on your sleeve and buy one of our exclusive t-shirts designed by Denise and Fearne?

The t-shirts only cost £15 and £5 from each sale will go straight to Breast Cancer Care.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and there are hundreds of ways you can support the charity: from gifts to special pink events. So get involved now and join your favourite celebs in showing your support!

xx Well done ladies, from everyone at Very.co.uk xx
