EIGHT members of the Westerham Club, affectionately known as the Westerham Wanderers, are taking to the tow path of the River Thames on Saturday, September 8 for a 50km hike to raise money for the town’s Churchill CE Primary School. Led by local businessmen Ray Barr who last year walked from Westerham to Canterbury, bringing in over £2000 for the school, the Wanderers will set off from Fulham bridge at 7am on the Saturday and finish at around 7pm at Runnymede.
The hikers have identified three areas where we would like to spend the money raised from this challenge – they would like to continue to improve the IT facilities within the school; they want to put some cash towards the school’s drive to improve the wellbeing of the pupils; and they would like to improve the Churchill Primary’s maths resources.
During his walk Ray Barr will take his one millionth step since he began monitoring his paces back in July; Ray reckons he takes 17,000 steps a day and this challenge is being added to the tow path adventure.
