Fourteen dedicated Kings Langley Football Club supporters raised £1,500 for charity by walking 15 miles to watch the team in action at Harrow Borough FC.
Both sets of fans donated to the 14 walkers, who set off from the Lango’s Orbital Fasteners Stadium at 8.45am on Saturday, February 12, and trekked all the way to Harrow’s Earlsmead Stadium ahead of kick-off in the afternoon.
The valiant effort from the supporters, along with Pippin the dog, saw them raise vital funds for Druglink, a Hemel-based charity whose objective is to change the future for people who are, or could be, affected by substance misuse.
Greg Lee, Kings’ supporter’s liaison, told KingsNews: “We carried out the same walk to Harrow in 2019, however, with COVID disruption over the last couple of years, we’ve been limited in events that we could run.
“In 2020, we had planned to walk in support of Druglink, and it was a pleasure for us to finally meet this commitment. The club wanted to work with a local charity and start to build some wider community links and relations.
“Emma Kingham at Druglink has been hugely supportive of the partnership and we look forward to having many more events and further engagement moving forward.
“It is always a pleasure to work with the Druglink team, and we had a fantastic time. The weather was very kind to us and having the fresh legs from the Harrow supporters for the last few miles really kept us going.
“Thank you so much to all for the effort that went into making this a great event and for all the very generous donations that were made.”
To add to the spectacle, Kings Langley took three points home with them, after narrowly beating Harrow 0-1.
