Blistered but beaming – the Westerham Wanderers walk the walk

Footsore but delighted with their efforts, the intrepid members of the Westerham Club, affectionately known as the Westerham Wanderers, enjoy a drink back at the club after taking to the tow path of the River Thames 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 set off from Fulham bridge at 7am and finished 11 hours later at Runnymede, blistered but beaming.
