The original Hedley May Challenge raised over £105,000 for
The Prince’s Trust Fairbridge Programme, by walking 270 miles from our City offices at Sun Court to Louis XIV’s ‘Sun Court’ in Versailles. So far, The Hedley May Challenge 2.0 has raised over £39,000 out of our very ambitious target of £120,000 for The Prince’s Trust Fairbridge Programme.
On the 20th September 2019 we embarked on the 3rd leg of The Hedley May Challenge 2.0, trudging from March in Cambridgeshire to Boston in Lincolnshire, which is part of a five-year 220 mile trek from London to the great city of York, in celebration of our first US office in, you guessed it, New York! We are delighted to say that the whole team completed over 43 miles of trekking through the blistering heat in the East Anglian countryside. Despite some painful injuries and some gory blisters everyone walked/hobbled/sprint finished to Boston Station in one piece.
Last year, we completed 45 miles on a very wet, wind-swept and worn out 2nd leg which kicked off at Royston station, passing west of Cambridge to St Ives. As you can see from our photos, we kept our spirits up despite the rain and wind as we crossed the Fenland and finally arrived at our destination of March.
We would like to say a special THANK YOU to all of our
generous sponsors who have supported the Hedley May Challenge 2.0 thus far, and as always, we are incredibly grateful for your support. Remember it isn’t too late to donate to such an amazing cause and Hedley May WILL MATCH YOUR SPONSORSHIP POUND FOR
The Fairbridge Programme supports young people aged 16 – 25 with challenges such as growing up in care, mental health problems and or homelessness take their first steps back into education, employment or training. These are often life-changing opportunities that aim to build the personal, social and economic skills needed to stabilise their lives and fulfil their potential.
“Fairbridge gave me back my life, but a much better life than I ever thought I would have had before. It gave me the opportunity to be me… I am now full of self-confidence and am studying to pursue a worthwhile
career that I know I will love.” Your donation makes a real difference to support disengaged young people across the UK, inspiring them to change their lives for the better. For more information visit:
