On Saturday 24th September 8 members of the Eldon team plus Gemma’s husband Jamie set out at dawn to walk a marathon distance, 26.2 miles, along the Northumberland coastal path. None of the walkers had ever completed anything near to that distance but a cracking pace was set and after 8 hours walking with just 1 hour of stops, we made it!

Tony and Jan provided superb support, meeting us at various points along the way with hot drinks and food, and friends Nic and Neville Tynemouth surprised us at one point with a very welcome supply of jelly babies. This was our annual fundraising event and we will be able to hand over around £3,000 to the Alzheimer’s Society.
