WALKING THE AMERICAS

 

An evening with Levison Wood

 

In aid of The AMECA Trust, explorer Levison Wood will be giving an illustrated talk on his latest expedition, as he follows up his previous journeys along the entire lengths of the Nile and the Himalayas.

Please join us at St John's School, Leatherhead, Surrey on Friday 17th March 2017, 7.30 p.m. for what promises to be a great evening fundraising event. Following Lev's talk, there will be a reception during which Lev will be signing copies of Walking the Americas and Sunday Times bestsellers, Walking the Nile and Walking the Himalayas.
Tickets are £26.50, to include a complimentary drink.  To book your tickets online, please visit the St John’s website link.
Alternatively, cheques should be made payable to St John’s School, for the attention of Katherine Colbrook, Events Coordinator, St John's School, Epsom Road, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 8SP.


 
All proceeds from this event will be directed towards funding a maternity block and a volunteer block at the site of AMECA's primary healthcare clinic at Chilaweni, S Lunzu, Malawi. The AMECA Clinic and staff housing is in the final stage of construction and is anticipated to be operational in early 2017.


AMECA is delighted, once again, to have been chosen by St John's pupils in Churchill House as their nominated charity. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the staff and pupils for their enthusiasm and support for the charity.
 
In an adventure-filled one-man show, Levison recounts his amusing and sometimes poignant tales of life as a soldier in the Parachute Regiment and his subsequent transition into a modern day explorer. This new talk features further tales and behind the scenes moments from his journeys walking the length of the Nile and the Himalayas, both of which were documented by Channel 4, alongside his most recent travels walking 1700 miles along the length of Central America.

Lev will share stories from his return to Mexico, where he once lived for three months and Belize, where he trained as a soldier with the British Army, before stepping into a part of the world he’s never visited before. Featuring some of the most diverse, beautiful and unpredictable regions on earth, Lev’s journey takes in ancient Mayan ruins still lying unexplored in the jungles of Guatemala and Honduras, the incredible wildlife diversity in Costa Rica's cloud forests, Nicaragua's active volcanoes, the Panama Canal and the notoriously treacherous Darien Gap.
 
Levison Wood’s forthcoming documentary series ‘Walking The Americas’ will air on Channel 4 in early spring 2017, whilst his book of the same name will be published by Hodder & Stoughton in February. 
 



Lev became a Patron of AMECA in November 2014.
A great supporter of the charity, Lev was a longstanding friend and Army colleague of Alex Coutselos, in whose memory the charity was founded.
It is fitting that this event will be held at St John's School, Leatherhead, Surrey. Many of you will be aware that this was Alex's former school.
Alex would be so very proud.
