Fundraiser treks 100km for hospice

An intrepid fundraiser has put in the miles as he put his best foot forward to raise hundreds for a good cause.

Alongside friend Chris Oxborrow, Shaun Newrick pulled on his walking shoes in memory of his mother-in-law Pauline, and tackled a 100km trek in the Peak District to raise £920 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

The pair walked through the night, finishing their challenge in just under 24 hours, on July 13.

Shaun said: “It was so hard, and to be honest when it got to around 3-4am in the morning I looked at the clock and I didn’t think we would be able to do it.

“Then we saw the camp and the flags in the distance and it really motivated us, and we got to the finish with two minutes to spare.”
