The EquipmentWe have provided John with the rental of the Iridium GO! Satellite Wi-Fi Hotspot. We recommended this device as it offers John global coverage. He can keep in touch with friends, family and his followers back in the UK. He simply has to connect his smartphone or tablet to the device to make voice calls or get internet connection!
Why Challenge Sahara?"Last year I was introduced to Children's Hospice Derian House and I was blown away with the incredible care and support that they are giving to children and young people with life threatening conditions. After seeing the work that they do and understanding the amounts they need to provide the care needed for the youngsters and their families I wanted to do something using my skills as a football freestyler to raise as much money as possible. Derian House is a truly special place and my goal is to raise as much money as possible for them." John Farnworth.
