Eddisons team to complete 47-mile Norfolk Coast Path in 24 hours in £10k charity fundraising challenge

A team of colleagues from property group Eddisons’ eastern regional offices, in Peterborough, Cambridge, Huntingdon and Bury St Edmunds, are setting out to walk all 47 miles of the Norfolk Coast Path from Hunstanton to Cromer in just 24 hours next month, with the aim of raising £10,000 for the charity, Sue Ryder.

The intrepid colleagues, who have been training for their mammoth coastal trek throughout August, were inspired to raise money for Sue Ryder which provides expert and passionate palliative care to people living with life-limiting conditions, by their colleague and friend David Park. David, a director in Eddisons’ Peterborough building and project consultancy team, was diagnosed with cancer in 2021.

The Eddisons team, joined by David’s son, Cameron, who works for M&G Investments, plan to begin the gruelling walk from Hunstanton on the morning of Thursday 8 September, trekking throughout the night along the coastal route and reaching Cromer on Friday morning.

“It’s quite ambitious to try and complete this route in just 24 hours and it will definitely be tough trekking right through the night, but we’re determined to reach our £10,000 fundraising goal for Sue Ryder, with £5,000 sponsorship already secured, ” said Eddisons eastern region director Martin Hughes.

“We are all spurred on by the knowledge that the money we raise will help fund much-needed expert end-of-life care and we’re currently all training hard whenever we can to try and make sure we’re in the best physical shape for this challenge.”

He added: “It’s been great training together as a team of colleagues and friends. Hopefully our hard work will pay off and we will complete the 47 miles in a respectable time and with a good result for Sue Ryder.”

Vicki Lunn, community fundraising and operations officer at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough, said: “A big thank you to the team at Eddisons for taking on this epic challenge to support Sue Ryder. It’s very touching to see them all pull together, in honour of their colleague and friend, David. The money they raise will make a big difference in helping us to continue to be there when it matters for people going through the most difficult times of their lives.”
