Putting their best feet forward for charity
In the last 12 months, the team from Hare and Co Accountants based on Horizon Court, Clifton Moor has become far too familiar with the
effects cancer can have upon family, friends and co-workers.
One of their colleagues is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy and with cancer also affecting many other members, they’re aiming to raise as much money as possible for Macmillan Cancer Support throughout the year.
Their first fundraising event was undertaken by one of their Directors, Linda Hare, and her friend Kate Hawksworth (pictured below), walking the Minster Way over a three-day period from the 14 September 2018.
The Minster Way is a 49-mile route between the magnificent Minsters of Beverley and York. It crosses the Chalk Hills, as well as a wide variety of the countryside throughout the East Riding of Yorkshire. Part of the route follows the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail across Sylvan Dale before diverting to Millington, Bishop Wilton and Stamford Bridge, where it follows the River Derwent into the Plain of York as far as the River Ouse.
A bit of wayward navigation turned the walk into 54 miles, but they did it. There were some extremely sore muscles and feet, but nothing a spa treatment at the end could not resolve.
At the time of going to print they have raised a huge £3,100 for this worthy cause.
