Helen Hedges a shareholder in Fordhall Farm, dropped by on Friday to lend a hand. Currently Helen is the logistical support behind The Big Walk http://thebigwalk.co.uk/ and took the time to fit us in inbetween dropping off and picking up her walking team. Helen’s husband Geoff Hedges and friends Diana & Drew Kirby from Tockenham, Wiltshire are walking the length of the country more than 1,100 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats! The team of four will be traveling the entire journey together, with Helen organising all the background details needed to keep the walk on schedule and keep everyone healthy and happy.
Helen walked the farm trail during her visit to Fordhall Farm and then helped the Fordhall Community Land Initiative (FCLI) in our office for the afternoon; we were then able to stamp Helen’s Land’s End to John O’Groats logsheet before she sped off to pick up the rest of the team at Friday’s finish line! Geoff, Diana, and Drew started their 12 week mission on the 1st April 2011, that works out at about 15 miles of walking per day with 6 days walking and 1day rest.
A very inspiring bunch of people!!! Check out their blog at http://thebigwalk.co.uk/ pledges to the charities that they are supporting can be made through this webpage too!
Thankyou very much for your help Helen, we appreciate that you took the time to visit us on your epic journey.
