Hadrian's Wall Charity Challenge takes place next week
Cleaning and security company Aston Services Group (ASG) has decided to take on the Hadrian's Wall Walk Challenge and raise funds for two charities The Alzheimer's Society and Guide Dogs for the Blind.
The walk, usually taking from seven to 10 days to complete, will start from Bowness on Solway across the top of England to Wallsend on the East Coast. Covering 84 miles of ancient British history, it follows in the footsteps of the Romans who built this magnificent fortification almost 2,000 years ago.
Usually taking from seven to 10 days to complete, the ASG team is aiming to 'walk the wall' in three days at an average of 28 miles per day - over a marathon distance every day!
Nick Atkinson, managing director explains the background: "I challenged the directors to propose two charities each that they believed to be suitable for our fundraising efforts. National charity names were put into a hat and the two charities drawn were: The Alzheimer's Society and Guide Dogs for the Blind.
"The challenge is scheduled to take place from Friday 17th September to Sunday 19th September 2021. Please help us raise much needed money for these two deserving charities":
Taking part in the challenge (and training hard) are:
Nick Atkinson, managing director; Ian Gilston, chairman; James Wheeler, relationship & business development director; Zoe Elliot, business development director, and Tom Bowerskill, payroll manager.
