A Fundraising Event achieved in November 2018

A Walk from Kyoto to Tokyo along the Nakasendo Way

Alice Coptcoat walked from Kyoto to Tokyo along the old Edo trading highway, through Japan’s central mountains. Alice walked between 15K to 26K per day depending on the gradient and raised approximately £15,000.

A Fundraising event achieved in August 2016

The Desert Island Challenge which raised £7,345

Xan Coptcoat and Marcus Bird undertook the toughest of challenges to raise money for The Malcolm Coptcoat Trust.

Both survived for three weeks, unaided, on the deserted Indonesian island of Amparo, emulating the model of Channel 4’s Bear Grylls – the Island.
They took only the most essential tools to survive, created their own shelter and fished/hunted/foraged for food.
