Andrew's 500 mile walk for Befriending in Bucks
On Monday 5th June, our amazing fundraiser Andrew completed his incredible 500 mile walk. This challenge started in Northumberland with our charity shop in Aylesbury marking the finishing line. Andrew walked the entire route unsupported with a tent on his back, camping along the way. Andrew completed this huge fundraising challenge in just 31 days. Andrew has raised £2,000 so far which will pay for over 400 Befriending visits. That’s enough to send a Befriender to almost eight older people in bucks for an entire year!
Andrew met with the news team over at MIX96 after his walk. Find out what they had to say here.
The challenge was in aid of our Befriending service, which alleviates loneliness for older people across Bucks by providing weekly visits from trained volunteers. Find out more about our Befriending service here.
