Efie the Afasic Bear goes travelling with Rachel

Efie the Afasic BearRachel Chapman, a SLT from Swansea has left us to go travelling the world; but she is not alone! Efie (as named by Rachel) the Afasic Bear is accompanying her. Efie has a twin called Ted who has also been on many adventures but is taking a rest so Efie is now the official Afasic Bear.

Rachel has worked at our Youth Club in Neath for over two years, she started as a volunteer and soon became a very valued member of the amazing team of staff.  Rachel is an inspiration to us all, especially the members of Neath Youth Troop where she went above and beyond her professional role in her fundraising quest, recently completing the London Marathon.

Whilst we are very sad to see Rachel leave us we are excited to hear her updates of her travels, at the moment Rachel and Efie are visiting Singapore.  See if you can spot Efie on the Treetop Walk in MacRitchie . The Treetop walk is first of its kind in Singapore; this free-standing suspension bridge connects the two highest points (Bukit Peirce and Bukit Kalang) in MacRitchie and offers a bird’s eye view of the community of plants and animals that live in the forest canopy.

Following the exertions of the Treetop walk you can see Efie “chilling” at Lake Toba – an enormous crystal-clear lake that’s almost twice the size of Singapore.  It’s located on a super volcano in Northern Sumatra that has been dormant for the past 74,000 years – and situated amongst towering mountains and drifting clouds!
