Pembrokeshire Coast Charity Walk
Three adventurous Stamford School students walked 300km across Wales - from Cardigan on the West Coast to Amroth on the South West Coast – all in aid of charity, encountering beautiful Pembrokeshire scenery, torrential rain and friendly campers -who generously donated £180 to their worthy cause – along the way.
Just half an hour after the three students - Luke Higgins, Tim Boughton, Christian Kirkup –received their AS-Level results, they were on the train making their way to Wales hoping to raise £1,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, a charity which grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses. The boys took just 12 days to complete the walk, covering up to 30km a day. Having raised £500 they are well on their way to achieving their target.
Despite coming home with nine blisters Tim Broughton thoroughly enjoyed the expedition, commenting ‘Sometimes it was a challenge to find the motivation to carry on when we were really tired, but the feeling of achievement at the end and raising money for such a worthy cause made it all worth it, while swimming with seals was also a real highlight.’
