From the 9th of July 2011 an assortment of friends and I will will embark on an ambulance and tea odyssey from London to Tajikistan. We will drive our emergency medical vehicle across Europe and along the ancient Silk Road, crossing awkward borders, scorching deserts and majestic mountains. All the while endeavouring to make friends with all those we meet in typically English fashion - by sharing a lovely cup of tea!

Central Asia was the playing field for the 19th Century "Great Game" played out between intrepid agents of the Russian and British empires and was the hub of millennia old trading routes between China and Europe. The ultimate destination is Tajikistan and the mighty Pamirs - "The Roof of the World" which contains the second highest highway in the World - and the celebrations for the country's 20th year of independence.

The much needed ambulance will then be donated to a local hospital and put into full service. The whole experience - from climbing 6000m peaks, traversing some of the World's most inhospitable terrain in an ambulance to administering tea or first aid to desert nomads - will be filmed in beautiful High Definition for a documentary.

In addition TEAmbulance are using the expedition to raise money for fantastic causes we passionately believe in:

1) Go Help - who will use it to fund projects in Tajikistan run by Save the Children and Sworde-Teppa. (link to: http://www.justgiving.com/Jeremy-Aylmer)

2) Panthera and their crucial work to save the planet's endangered big cats, including the elusive "Mountain Ghosts" - the Snow Leopards of Tajikistan. (link to: http://www.justgiving.com/TEAmbulance)
