London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital is nearly half-a-million pounds richer thanks to Still Waters Run Deep creative and managing director Anita Brightley-Hodges and 19 other volunteers. The group recently returned from a 100km, ten-day fundraising trek along Namibia’s Ugab River, which raised £45 000 for the children’s hospital. Brightley-Hodges (pictured) lists stroking a black rhinoceros, swimming in an elephant pool ‘watched over’ by voyeur baboons, and standing an alarming 10cm from feeding cheetahs as highlights of the trip. Rather you than us.
