What started as a casual chat amongst friends has turned into a challenge of epic proportions! The Lands’ End to John O’Groats crew – made up of Hornby Whitefoot PR, Deco-Pak, Primeur, Garden Trade News, Gardenforum and GIMA representatives – have now doubled their Garden Re-Leaf virtual challenge distance, with a grand total of 1,206 miles earmarked for completion by the end of March!
The ‘crew’ have been walking, running and cycling everyday of March, and having clocked up close to their original target (603 miles – the distance between Lands’ End and John O’Groats as the crow flies) within the first 12 days they decided why not go a little bit further and tackle the return journey as well, totalling over 1,200 miles.
Kimberley Hornby, MD of Hornby Whitefoot PR who helped set up the ‘crew’ said: “We always thought 603 miles was an ambitious plan but in reality, we have been racing through the miles. As Garden Re-Leaf Day approaches, we saw us reaching our target ahead of time and decided to just keep going. With the remainder of March ahead of us to walk and raise funds, we are confident we can smash our fundraising target and would like to thank everyone who has already kindly donated.”
