The Sisterhood Robben Island Challenge 2013

This amazing group of ladies, based in the UK (clusters around the world), challenge themselves to do amazing things to raise money for those in need.

I was approached  by Kirsty and the group. They wanted to do something out of the ordinary and a challenge, to raise funds for charity.

In just 7 weeks, the ladies were ready for the challenge. We chose a beautiful day and the group of 12 ( nervous) ladies set off from Blouberg Beach ( with me as their Guide) to conquer the Atlantic Ocean and their fears
