The Hedley May Walk 2.0

Dear Friends,

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 Thursday 22nd September 2022 Hedley May will embark on the 5th leg of our 6 year The Hedley May Challenge 2.0 – walking from our offices in London to the great City of York, raising money for two of our charity partners.

After a year of rest and a summer of training we are ready to get our legs pounding across the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds as we trek the 45 miles from Louth, towards the maritime city of Hull where we will finish by crossing the mighty Humber Bridge!

Over the six years, we aim to raise over £120,000 for The Prince’s Trust Fairbridge Programme and Making The Leap, both organisations support vulnerable young adults and/or socially mobile young people across the UK (please see our JustGiving page linked below for more information).  2021 was a bumper fundraising year, but in 2022 we want to do even better for the Hedley May community partners!

We will be incredibly grateful for your support and as always, Hedley May WILL MATCH YOUR SPONSORSHIP POUND FOR POUND!  Every penny of your kind donation will be well-used – raising £15,000 will pay for 10 young people to be put through the Making the Leap programme and £10,000 will pay for 10 young people to go through the Fairbridge Programme. This will keep us trudging through the rain!

Back by popular demand, alongside the opportunity to sponsor Hedley May in this mammoth task, we are also offering you the opportunity to receive a thank of your choice for your generosity.  If your donation reaches the generous level of £300 we would offer one-on-one interview training for you or a family member/friend and if your donation reaches the extremely generous level of £600 we would love to spend an afternoon with your team or a school of your choice providing interview skills, career coaching or training. Simply click here to check them out and donate.
