On Saturday 18th September, a group of 11 people completed a sponsored walk to fundraise for Amy Llewellyn’s eye gaze communication aid. The sponsored walk included hiking over ‘Shropshire 3 Peaks’ – the Lawley, Caradoc and Ragleth – collectively 1,234m of climbing and 17.78km.
Everyone did exceptionally well, and we could not have been luckier with the weather! We are overwhelmed with the incredible donations we have received so far – reaching a total of £4,282 on Just Giving and, also, a whopping £1,206 has been sent to CCL, making it a total of £5,488! We are getting closer and closer to our target of £8,000, but we are still not quite there, so please share with your family and friends, and help us help Amy!
