Our hiking heroes!

June 22, 2017

Could you hike 90+ miles, over one week in 30 degree sun?


That's exactly what our two trekkers, Claire Gaskin and Tamara Bull have decided to do, raising money in aid of Southend YMCA. 

On Saturday 17th June, Claire and Tamara began their journey from Land's End, walking the miles of coastline on their way to Padstow.

With a day to go before they reach their destination they are currently on the way to Mawgan Porth to finish tonight in Porthcothan. 

So far, they have raised over £1500, via their just giving page. 

Below is a selection of snaps from their adventure so far; if you can donate to support their efforts, please do so and help them make even more of an impact in helping local young people in need - 

Thank you Tamara and Claire and good luck with the rest of your adventure!
