An Inverurie teenager is preparing to take on an adventure of a lifetime.

Jamie Harper (17) is set to go on an expedition to the Peruvian Amazon for five weeks in July next year.

The trip is being led and organised by The British Exploring Society.

The expedition is partnered with International NGO, Cress Foundation.

Jamie said: “To do this I need to raise £3,500 for the trip and £1,100 for the flights.

“In April next year I will be going on a training weekend down in England.

“When I am in the Peruvian Amazon I will be doing scientific studies and looking at biodiversity in the area.”
