Successful send off starts Coast to Coast
A meeting of Board members, staff and residents ensured a successful send off from Olsen Court. Wearing navy blue sweatshirts and printed for the occasion, Nick, Sarah, Phil, Rachel and Philip received advice and support from well wishers over tea, sandwiches and cakes before departing for St Bees in Cumbria.
The team will also be joined by Bob Walder from the Longhurst Group as they rendezvous on Sunday evening before an early start on Monday.
The walk will begin along St Bees Head Heritage Coast before turning in land. The team are preparing for a wet start but hope that the weather will improve as the week progresses.
'Despite months of preparation, the challenge we face suddenly now feels real' said Nick. 'We would like to thank Philip Hutchings, our Chairman, for his words of encouragement at our send off and to everyone for their best wishes and sponsorship/generous donations.
We hope that everyone will continue to follow our progress and if you wish to place a donation to support our fund raising please feel free to donate on the link below.
