A team from Russell WBHO has completed a 34-mile charity walk in aid of children’s charity Stick N Step.
The group has raised more than £3,700 for the charity which supports children with Cerebral Palsy living in the North West.
In a bid to raise as much as possible for the charity, the team has upped its target to £4,000 and will keep the fundraising page open for an extra week for any last minute donations.
The Russell WBHO Team undertaking the trek comprised Lee Mottram, Matt Wilson, Jake Ogden, Joe McHugh, Marcus Crawford, Colin Hindley, Jonathan Rhodes and James Brown.
Jake Ogden said: “We had a great time doing the walk, the team had a good laugh and we helped each other on.
“At 34 miles it was quite hard going, especially in the heat, there were a lot of steep sections which were tough, but we powered through and the views were fantastic, it was so worth the pain!”
Jake and colleague Joe visited the charity last week to meet some of the children and see the team in action. Read Story Here.
Jake added: “Having visited the charity last week and seen the amazing work they do, we were determined to raise as much money as possible and so we’re delighted with the donations we’ve had so far.
“Huge thanks to everyone who has supported us, from friends and family to colleagues and subbies. Hopefully a few more days and we can hit that £4,000 target.”
Ahead of the walk Jo Fowler, fundraising manager at Stick N Step said: “Everyone at Stick ’n’ Step is right behind you, the children have still been talking about your hard hats and how heavy they are, one of the boys even wants to come to work with you.
“Have the best day, we know it will be hard and we can’t wait to see the pics and hear all about it.”
