As part of Abingdon Health’s ongoing commitment to supporting Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and Sands UK, Stillbirth and Neo-Natal Death Charity. Volunteers from Abingdon Health’s York office walked between Staithes and Scarborough.
Covering nearly 30 miles in about 10 ½ hours the intrepid explorers took on a section of the Cleveland Way along North Yorkshire’s stunning coastline.
Abbas Din, Malcolm Briggs, Ra Horgan and Steph Mabin set off from Staithes at 06:40 am on 11th March 2017, following a rendezvous in York at 05:00 am. Taking in some breath-taking scenery and walking along the cliff tops above the North Sea the quartet trudged their merry way through Captain Cook Country.
The team arrived at the edge of Scarborough around 5:30 pm after walking nearly 26.6 miles and running for 2 miles. Yes, running!
In total the intrepid explorers managed to raise £565 for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and Sands UK, Stillbirth and Neo-Natal Death Charity – well done!Click on this link to see more pictures from the walk.
