W.Bro. Nick Hayward, the charity steward of Abbey Lodge 1592 will be embarking on their first major fundraising event for the Festival 2019.
Together with Nick’s wife and 11 year old son Morgan they will be walking the Suffolk coastal path from Lowestoft to Felixstowe covering a total of between 55 to 65 miles depending on the tides which may force them inland at times. They are doing the walk over the Easter period and anyone wishing to sponsor Nick and his family please email him on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wish you every success and hope the weather will be kind!
UPDATE – COMPLETED WALK
W.Bro Nick Hayward completed with Suffolk Coastal Walk and is pleased to report no casualties along the way, fine weather with the wind at our backs most of the time.
They covered 56.5 miles in total and took 23 hours 45 minutes walking time, which considering their 11 year old sons legs are not as long as theirs and the terrain at times was tough going on the shingle they did a fantastic job.
The highlights of the trip were seals swimming up Butley river and basking in the sun off of Orfordness. A few friend and a couple of members supported them along the way.
The total raised was £463.90.
