The Hedley May Walk 2.0
Every September for the last nine years our team have been trudging through the countryside on the Hedley May Challenge, raising funds for the least advantaged in our community – over 400 miles and £150,000 so far!
On Friday 24th September 2021 we will embark on the 4th leg of year six of The Hedley May Challenge 2.0 – walking from our offices in London to the great City of York. After an unconventional fundraising year of 2020, which saw us take on individual fundraising challenges, we are back and ready to stretch our legs and pound the fields, bogs and hillsides as a team once more together!
Our aim is to raise over £120,000 for The Prince’s Trust Explore Programme, and, for the first time, Making the Leap, in the process. We will be matching every donation made.
After such a challenging past-18 months, it is clear that the most at risk are those who were already the most disadvantaged in our communities. The demand for the vital services delivered by the Explore Programme of the Prince’s Trust, as Fairbridge is now known, has dramatically increased post 2020. For the first time since inception, we will also be splitting this years’ proceeds with another special charity partner of ours dedicated to addressing social mobility amongst our young people in London; Making the Leap. Both charities mean a great deal to us at Hedley May and the demand for their vital services has increased tenfold in the last 12 months.
