FORESTERS RAISE FUNDS FOR YOUTH SPORT TRUST WITH HADRIANS WALL CHALLENGE...






17th February, 2024.


A drive to raise funds for children’s charity, Youth Sport Trust, has inspired four Foresters members to embark on a walking expedition challenge along Hadrian’s Wall.

Covering 73 miles from coast to coast, Hadrian’s Wall was built to guard the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire.

Participants Glyn Carpenter, Alan Mackinnon pictured (lives in Thirsk), Helen Hicks and Trish Slade (who come from the West, North, East and South of England) will be setting off on the six-day expedition on in April 2024, which will cover 87 miles in total.

Starting at Bowness on Solway, the walkers will make their way along the path stopping overnight at Carlisle, Walton, Bardon Mill, Chollerford and Heddon on the Wall and will complete the wall at Wallsend before ending the walk at the east coast.
