Eddisons East Midland team’s 47-mile walk beats fundraising target to raise over £14k for charity

Last week Eddisons eastern regional offices combined forces in order to complete the 47 miles Norfolk coast walk from Hunstanton to Cromer. They completed the challenge in just 24hrs and have raised a staggering £14,000 for their nominated charity, Sue Ryder.

Inspired by their friend David Park, a director in Eddisons’ Peterborough building and project consultancy team who was sadly diagnosed with cancer in 2021. The team set a target of raising £10,000 for Sue Ryder, the charity that provides expert palliative care to people living with life-limiting conditions.

The intrepid colleagues set off from Hunstanton on the morning of 8 September, trekking throughout the night along the coastal route and reaching Cromer the following morning.

“It was tough, but we did it,” said Eddisons eastern region director Martin Hughes. “As a team, we were able to push through the night and keep our spirits up despite the aches and pains and a closed path which actually added to the 47 mile! We’re so proud and grateful for all the support we’ve received in helping us beat our £10,000 target and raise over £14,000 to provide help and much-needed expert end-of-life care for Sue Ryder.
