It’s become a bit of a tradition here At Stocksigns that every year we take on a new challenge for a different charity.
At the moment as it stands, we have the green light on the road map to start planning/training for our next event. Last year we hiked the Surrey hills in our little socially distanced bubbles and walked just over 24 miles. We hoped to raise £3342 as that was the total of the elevation for the walk. I can confirm we walked all over that amount and raised an incredible amount (£3800) for the NHS Charities and Rospa.
We are delighted to say that we are back with another charity challenge for this year.
Captain Cload has dug out his map and put on his hiker hat and planned our next expedition, knowing Captain Cload it will be no walk in the park!
Welcome… to the Jurassic Coast!
Over two days we are aiming to hike Dorset’s Jurassic Coast! 75 km and 9,000ft of elevation will make it one of our toughest challenges to date! In past challenges, we have had the luxury of staying in hostels where we had a bed to rest our aching bodies and a warm welcoming shower to wake us up in the morning. This year to add to the challenge we will be camping. I might be crying whilst camping!
Our chosen charity for this year is The Children’s Trust. The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. The Trust runs a range of specialist care, education and therapy services for children and young people from across the UK. It includes the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with acquired brain injury (ABI) and is based at Tadworth Court.
Now it’s time for Team Stocksigns and friends, to dust off those hiking boots, get to the pharmacy, and stock up on Compeed, and add energy bars to the weekly shop as our Walk and Talk Wednesdays are back!
Bring on the blisters and the bants it’s time for some new Kings and Queens of the mountains on those Strava segments.
