Epic walking challenge raises over £800 for Enham Trust
An epic walking & cycling challenge has raised over £800 for leading Hampshire-based disability charity Enham Trust.
The challenge, undertaken by Enham Trust resident Hayley, who has Cerebral Palsy and uses a wheelchair, spanned 6 miles in just 7 weeks.
Originally wanting to emulate the 1.5 mile circumference of a lake in her favourite spot near Exmoor in Devon where she used to go on activity holidays, Hayley took on the challenge as a way of building up her strength and maintaining her mobility whilst raising funds for Enham Trust; setting herself a target of raising £200 by walking 1.5 miles in 6 weeks.
After only a few weeks, Hayley easily surpassed her targets and, feeling confident, incorporated cycling into the challenge.
Just 6 months previously Hayley struggled to walk, but with the support of Enham Trust’s physiotherapy partners Hobbs Rehabilitation, Hayley managed an impressive 6 miles on foot & bicycle; raising an impressive £813.79 for the charity she’s called home for the last 7 years.
Kerrie Morley, Enham Trust’s Income Generation Co-Ordinator, said of Hayley’s efforts:
“We’re incredibly grateful to Hayley for raising funds on our behalf, and would like to congratulate her on her tremendous achievement. Just 6 months ago, Hayley would not have been able to do this, but thanks to her hard work and determination, with the support of the Hobbs team, and us here at Enham Trust, she’s far surpassed her goal; truly encapsulating the ‘Power of Yes!’.”
All funds raised by this event go towards Enham Trust’s ongoing work; supporting thousands of disabled people across the country each year in every area of their lives by providing housing, care, and various employment & skills opportunities to ensure each customer gains independence, choice, and control over daily decisions.
