Two Kings Langley brothers-in-law will trek 100 km in under 30 hours to help raise money for an important charity.
Andrew Cameron, 35, who works at The Barbers Lounge in Kings High Street, will be walking Oxfam’s Trailwalker on September 20-22 alongside his brother-in-law, Jason North, who’s a plumber for Arter & North in The Nap.
They will be joined by their friend from Watford, Jack Lucas, as they look to push themselves to their physical limit for Oxfam and its selected charity, The Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT).
GWT is a British charity established in 1969. It is the principal UK charity dedicated to the provision of aid to Gurkha ex-servicemen and their dependants in their homeland of Nepal, and increasingly in the UK and elsewhere.
Andrew said: “We are just three ordinary guys, who want to challenge ourselves mentally and physically and in doing so we thought it would be a great chance to raise some money for a worthy charity for Oxfam and the Gurkhas.
“Walking 100k in under 30 hours will be testing in any circumstance. Completing this along with raising as much as we can will give us a real sense of achievement and make it seem like we have done our part in making a difference.”
Starting at Queen Elizabeth Country Park early in the morning, the Trailwalker route takes you along the stunning and historical South Downs Way to the finish line at Brighton Racecourse. They will then pass through nine checkpoints along the course. The distance between the checkpoints varies from 6-13 km.
