Review of Walking Group 11/11 Challenge 2020

Walkers approached this in a variety of ways, from walking 11,000 steps each day for 11 days, to walking for 11 hours over the course of a week, being sponsored and donating to The Royal British Legion. Collectively they walked 336 miles, the equivalent of walking from Oldham to Truro in Cornwall! Well done to all walkers – what an educational and poignant project! The final amount raised was £395.

Lydgate, Grotton, Austerlands, Waterhead, Lees War Memorials Circular
