Supported by members of the club, local businesses and individuals sponsoring the walk or bridges along the way; or joining the team for part of the walk and raising money on their own the trio raised £22k shared between the two charities.

The team covered the distance in 11 days with just one day of rest. A commendable average of 18 miles a day not including diversions and detours.
