Bucket List Trips
Since its conception, AWAS has taken part in more than 500 different events throughout the UK.
Building on this extraordinary achievement, in 2016 the foundation flew out to Morocco to trek 100km across the Sahara Desert, and in doing so launched its ‘Bucket List’ event series.
These ‘Bucket List’ trips, which take place 2 or 3 times a year, involve foundation members embarking on a once-in-a-life-time adventure that they will always remember, and so far it has been a truly remarkable experience for everyone involved.
Sahara Desert Trek
In November 2016, the foundation embarked on it's first 'Bucket List' trip, a 100km trek across the Sahara Desert in just 5 days!
Finland's silent wilderness was the perfect destination for a 5-day Arctic Adventure in March 2017.
