On Monday 24th May, Chris, Clive and Dave took on the challenge of walking the 18 miles between The Royal Sussex County and Princess Royal Hospitals.
The day was a tough but rewarding one. The team left The Royal Sussex at 9am, heading towards Brighton Racecourse. From there, they took a largely off-road route, taking on the climb to the top of the South Downs and then the walk across Ditchling Beacon.
There was a particularly tricky section coming up next! The walkers had to take on a very steep and rocky path that was running with water. This was very challenging, even for these most accomplished walkers!
From there on, the terrain was a little easier, and they stuck to footpaths as they approached Haywards Heath. The team arrived at The Princess Royal Hospital at around 6pm that evening, a little tired but very happy to have completed the challenge. What’s more, their initial fundraising target was set at £500 and they are now at over £1.4k raised! A big thank you to everyone who sponsored and got behind the team.
What an amazing effort – thank you to these superstar walkers.
