UNION CANAL: 150 mile charity walk goes through Kings Langley 

 Published on: 27th August 2019   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

A fundraiser who took part in a 150 mile charity walk from Birmingham to London walked through the village on her journey. 

Sylvia Keris from Staffordshire completed the Grand Union Walk recently and raised over £2,000 for The Buddy Bag Foundation and the End Polio Now campaign of Rotary Foundation.

Walking 10 to 12 miles each day for 13 days, Sylvia took a route through Kings Langley and neighbouring towns Rickmansworth and Watford. 

On her last day, which was challenging, Sylvia said even though her whole body was aching, she still had a big sense of relief that she had finished.

She said: “My whole body aches, but I still have a big smile on my face. It was a challenging, but adventurous walk, and I have met some wonderful people along the way – both the kind Rotarians who gave me a warm welcome and a bed for each night of my walk, those who accompanied me walking on some stretches of the canal; and a big cheer to the boaters, Canal & River trust people, Rotarians and other walkers – who kindly offered encouragement, drinks, and donations to my walk charities.”
