Paula Moon from Nestlé, who is taking part, said, "It's a slightly scary chance I've been given to participate in this amazing trek. I can't wait to walk the trails and weave through the beautiful wilderness of the Andes, visit remote villages and the famous ruins of Machu Piccu. All this, and, knowing that I'm really helping unemployed youngsters achieve their dreams too makes it even more special."

The Trek takes place from 26 October to 4 November and to join the likes of Sodexo, Compass, Nestlé, TGI Friday's, Venners, Danone Daires, Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and the Prestonfield House Hotel, contact, or phone 020 7529 8610.
