The Unlikely Pilgrimage of John Hacker

21st March 2016

“I have been a trustee of Thare Machi Education for over ten years now and having semi-retired I have the time to do something I’ve always wanted to do, and I have the opportunity to raise money for this great charity.

In April/May I will be doing a sponsored walk from Lands End to Wych Cross, East Sussex. The walk is over 600 miles long and I will be walking along the South West Coastal Path, up through the New Forest and along the South Downs Way.” – John

We think this might be the LONGEST Thare Machi fund-raising challenge ever attempted! A nice walk in the country might sound relaxing, but it’s not going to be easy for John. The route is very hilly in places and the British weather is very unpredictable at any time of year, so he’s going to need plenty of encouragement.
