Trek 26 Challenge

Kibworth resident Shellie Barron writes, I am taking part in a sponsored walk called TREK26 to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society in memory of my nan, Olive, after losing her last year to dementia. This is going to take place on Saturday 1 June in the Lake District as this was my nan’s favourite place to visit. The walk around Ullswater will consist of 26.1 miles with an elevation gain of 3,172 ft. Anyone who knows me knows I am not one to walk so this will definitely be a challenge!

I would like to share my justgiving page for any readers that would like to contribute as I try to raise as much as possible to help other people who are suffering from or supporting those with dementia.

Find out more about the event at the official TREK26 website.
