Sponsored 100 mile walk

Ed our Chairman, wanted to do something himself which could help to raise funds for the Society and when he heard about the 100-mile hike across The South Downs, he thought perhaps this is a challenge he could possibly complete, and so it was decided,  that he will begin his journey on April 22nd 2023. He is hoping to complete it in six days and will be camping along the way.

Not being a practiced long-distance walker as such, in fact, never having walked a long distance, this is going to be a real challenge and so he has started training. One thing is for sure, there are a lot of hills to climb.

You can follow him on his journey by watching the video blogs of his training walks and eventually the final hike and we hope you will donate generously.

See the latest warm-up walk. This video covers what turned out to be an 11.7-mile trawl through difficult swampy conditions, taking 4hrs 10 mins. Everything was going well until it wasn't! Well worth sitting down with a cuppa and seeing what happens.

We are very grateful to receive donations from members of the public and local businesses, and it is due to this generosity and community spirit that we are still functioning today.
