Friends ‘Walk the Wall’ to Raise Funds

11 August 2016

Hadrian's Wall

An intrepid duo will be raising money for our Foundation later this month by walking one of England's most heritage sites - Hadrian's Wall.

Friends, Chris and Steve, have ambitiously planned to march the 84 miles in four days, stopping off at local B&B's along the way.

Steve, whose sister, Laura, uses the Alan Shearer Centre, spoke to the Foundation about his fundraising mission:

"I've done long distance hikes before so I think we can manage 20 to 25 miles each day. My sister uses the Centre and I know how much it means to her".

Chris and Steve will begin their journey on Saturday, 20 August on the shore of the Solway Firth, where the wall begins. If you would like to support Steve and Chris on their adventure, please visit their fundraising page:
