    Story

    After a couple of years delay due to Covid-19 the Big Ben To Burton walk will begin 9th April 2022 starting at Big Ben in London. Seven Sponsored walkers will then make their way up through England covering up to 31 miles a day for a total of 7 days walking a total of 182 miles. Our end destination is back to the village we have all grown up in, Kirkburton in Huddersfield on 15th April 2022.

    With the delay in doing the walk our good friend Simon Docherty decided to do a 'in between challenge' and completed the famous 4x4x48 last year. In the process adding just over £10,000 to our pot before we had even started the main challenge which has given us a massive boost and smashed the total we had originally in mind.

    We are all doing this in memory of our good friend Ben Jebson who sadly lost his battle against Hodgkin Lymphoma back in August 2019 leaving behind a little daughter and pregnant wife at the age of 35.

      That’s it....he’s complete the challenge 4x4x48 . What an amazing turnout for him yesterday with people lining the streets to cheer him on and clap him home at the end. To say the support and donations that have been given have blown us away is an understatement...thank you so much to everyone who has donated / supported Simon along the way. Please keep an eye out for when we announce the new dates for the Big Ben to Burton walk...#teamJebson ♥️♥️
