MIGHTY MAYOR: Dacorum Mayor completes sponsored walk across district

 Published on: 1st May 2024   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

The mayor of Dacorum, William Allen, has successfully completed his sponsored 100km walk.

Mayor Allen pledged to raise £3000 before his 100km walk through Hemel, Tring, Berkhamstead, and other areas of Dacorum for Community Action Dacorum. From April 3-7, Mayor Allen finally completed his walk and was joined by nearly 50 other residents along the way.

As Tring News goes to print, Mayor Allen has surpassed his fundraising total, having raised nearly £3,300.

Mayor Allen said: “Back where we started five wonderful, action-packed days and 100km ago for a lovely evensong at All Saints’ Church, Kings Langley to celebrate safe returns.

“And the upshot is that we are lucky to live in such a beautiful area, I have been swept along by a wave of goodwill from so many people walking with me and coming to events and generously sponsoring the walk, and our charities and community groups in Dacorum are simply wonderful!

“My doppelganger councillor Robin Bromham accompanied me all five days just to be sure no one thought he subbed for me while I put my feet up, my exhausted wife, Annie Heaton is magnificent (I did always know this!) and has done so much hard organisation behind the scenes and my feet hurt!

“Thanks everyone for all your love, kindness and generosity. It’s been great fun and I’ll now do a victory lap… Round my garden!”
