Today our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE, received an update from Jayne Bayliss of Adlington, who successfully completed her challenging moorland walk last week from Adlington to Haworth in Yorkshire in aid of the team.
Jayne in the company of close friends, husband and wife couple Cath and Haydn Whittle, set off 07.30hrs on Monday morning 31st May last week, taking in on their first day the challenging and gruelling ’Three Towers’ route of Rivington Pike, Darwen Tower finishing for the day at Peel Tower, Holcombe above Ramsbottom.
Tuesday saw the three finishing up 21 miles further on in Hebden Bridge at 21.50hrs, having taken in the final ’summit’ of Stoodley Pike. (quite a day according to Jayne)
By 17.20hrs on Wednesday 2nd June, 54 miles later from their Monday morning start, it was all successfully over for Jayne, Cath and Haydn with their triumphant entry into Haworth.
Jayne explained to Garry that she wished to thank Haydn for planning out the route (Which followed the Trans Pennine Walk) and booking their accommodation, and her husband Mark and her young sons for their support. Mark who was originally due to do the walk with Jayne (but a family hospital operation meant Mark ended up looking after the children rather than the Grandparents) and obtained much sponsorship for Jayne from his work colleagues at Pincroft, Adlington.
For Jayne there was no chance for a well earned rest, as returning home she went straight off for a family camping holiday to Drigg in the Lake District.
Jayne reports that the first part of her sponsorship monies will be sent on to the team very soon, with many hundreds of pounds thankfully pledged so far.
