Walking for Charity

Fidelius Insurance Brokers supporting North Devon Chemotherapy Unit Appeal starting out on their 63.5 mile trek of Hadrian Wall.

Hoping to reach a target of £12,000 as part of an overall target of £2.2m.  Thrilled to hear this week in the press that work will commence in Sept this year as £1.4m has been achieved.   Russell Langham & Sarah Page were delighted with the weather - no rain!! Although very cold each day.
The views were amazing!

Sarah particularly enjoyed Vallum B&B overnight stay as managed to catch up with her sleep!

Sarah and Russell would like to say a special thanks to the other walkers we met on the route as a result of being blessed by Easter BunnyChocolates they were keen to donate!
