    Story

    We are a group of dads from Eccles in Kent who are walking fifty miles for twenty hours non-stop from Dover Castle to our village in Kent, to raise money for the local pre-school.

    We start on Friday, the 27th of January 2022, at 20:00 and arrive at the pre-school at 16:00 the following day.

    Eccles Pre-school has been an integral part of the local community for nearly 50 years. It is a much-loved, and well-regarded asset to parents, grandparents, and children past and present!

    Covid 19 closures, and restrictions (at the time) on organising fundraising gatherings, have meant that this 'low cost' childcare provision has found it hard to sustain childcare support at an affordable level. A fundraising boost will ensure that it not only survives but thrives!

    The pre-school already has a business plan that will secure its future for many years to come. However, the charity commission requires three months of funding in its account for it to continue, which is why we are raising such a significant sum.

    This money will secure the future of the pre-school.

      Wow! What can we say? We cannot believe the remarkable support we have received over the last 24 hours! We did it! We reached £5k! Thank you EVERYONE, yesterday was a day we will never forget and the welcome we received in Eccles will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Here’s a picture of the route that Craig, one of our dads, recorded and a reminder that every single penny does directly to the preschool. We are proud of our preschool and look forward to it being in our village for another fifty years (and beyond!).
