Kate Humble is the presenter of Springwatch and a travel writer. Kate founded the charity Stuff Your Rucksack three years ago. The organisation aims to unite travellers with charities in their destinations so that they can take much needed items in their rucksacks to personally deliver to the charities. Kate was motivated to set up the charity when she visited a school in Timbuktu that didn’t have a world map. She realised that she could have easily taken one out had she known there was a need for one.Find out more about Kate Humble
