#MotivationalMonday: How a local group raised £3000 for charity

A group of friends took on a major challenge last year:  They  wanted to raise money for Wooden Spoon, a Rugby based charity which raises money for disabled and disadvantaged children.

Based on Exmoor, they decided to walk the South West Coast Path from Combe Martin to Minehead. And so they did: 36 miles in 11 hours it took them! The best bit:  They raised £3000.00 for the charity!

“It’s the most stunning part of the Coast Path, and as we are all Exmoor based, it felt so fantastic to complete our challenge.”
David Dunster

 

Here is some background info on Wooden Spoon:

“Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. From sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and sports activity areas to respite, medical and community care, we fund around 70 projects each year that support disadvantaged and disabled children. Since our founding in 1983, we’ve distributed in excess of £24 million, helping over 1 million young people.”
