Jessica's Harrogate Ringway Endurance Test, 29 April 2023


It's 44 years since I started my first proper job after university and for all of those I have been working in the furniture industry.

This year I am taking a step back and easing myself into semi-retirement, so it seemed an appropriate moment to do a bit of fund raising for our industry charity, which does so much to support those fallen upon hard times; to help youngsters desperate to get on the ladder of a career in this wonderful industry; and to recognise and applaud excellent skills.

I am lucky enough to live on the outskirts of the delightful spa town of Harrogate and on Saturday 29th April, I'll be hiking round it. The Harrogate Ringway is a 20-mile circuit of the town, which is classed as 'strenuous'. I'm really only used to walking 10-12 miles a day, so it's going to be a considerable extra push for me to do this!

I would be very grateful for your support in reaching my fund raising target of £1,000.

Thanks so much - wish me luck and freedom from blisters!
