A Rugby charity worker is set to make a positive difference when she takes part in an expedition to Borneo.

Lisa Foster, 41, needs to raise £2,500 for Raleigh Internationl from a series of challenges ahead of leading a group of young volunteers this autumn.

She will be getting stuck into sustainable community and environmental projects, working in some of Borneo’s most remote places.

Lisa has already taken part in two of her challenges to raise money for the charity, including an 8 mile kayak along the canal in April, and the world’s largest obstacle course - 200 obstacles over 20 miles.

Her next challenge is cycling 113 miles on Rugby to London on July 2along the canal tow paths, finishing at Trafalgar Square.

The final challenge will be taking part in the Cotswold 226 long distance triathlon on July 17.

This consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and finishing with a 26.2 mile run - a full marathon.

Lisa said: “I currently work for a deaf children’s charity, and so already know the value of inspiring young people to take part in activities and develop skills and confidence. I am really excited about volunteering with Raleigh, as it provides the opportunity to work on a project chosen by the local community we will be living with in Borneo, and to make a genuine difference to their lives.
