We made it!
Myself, Paul, Jo, James, plus willing family and friends, spent Bank Holiday Monday alongside almost 700 others walking the notorious Bridgnorth Walk. Celebrating its 50th year, with the weather well and truly on our side, walkers took to the roads to complete the ‘undulating’ 22 mile course.
Beginning from the Bridgnorth High Street, the Bridgnorth Walk entails a rather hilly 22 mile course, which leads out along the scenic Shropshire roads to the summit of the Brown Clee (halfway point) before returning safely to Bridgnorth.
Our chosen charity for the year, Save the Children Bridgnorth, accrued a team of over 20 walkers, including our crew, who each completed the course and were welcomed back into town by a crowd of supporters, a free cider and a commemorative t-shirt! Amongst those walking was Rupert the Bear, Puff the Dragon (a local celebrity, walking in wellies), and one particular superhero that came to the rescue of one of our walkers by keeping her company along the way; Spiderman!
Thank you to all those who sponsored us, cheered us, and supplied much needed treats at each checkpoint and along the way; it was all worth it to raise money for the fantastic charity Save the Children.
Nursing blisters and minor aches and pains, we’re all back in the office, contemplating 2017’s entry!
With thanks to Claire Massey, Rachel Massey, Terry Cowburn and Hayley Benn who also walked for us and a special thanks to Elizabeth, the organiser of Save the Children Brignorth, for setting up our places and t-shirts, it was a pleasure to be part of your team!
