Huge congratulations to Karen Brake and Annie Pelkola who raised just over a fantastic £2,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking on the Bridgnorth Walk in May.
There was added poignancy to the charity walk for the intrepid duo, as they completed it in tribute to our dear friend and colleague Bryony Walker who passed away in the spring after a battle with cancer.
Karen and Annie, who are both based in our Bridgnorth office, completed 20 miles in six hours under almost cloudless skies – and although it was hard work, they loved it.
“It was a fantastic occasion with a great atmosphere,” said Karen after she had recovered.
“We did it with two other friends and all around the route people were giving us sweets and drinks.
“It was glorious weather, and we felt that Bryony was looking down on us - we miss her hugely but it was nice to pay tribute to her in a small way and raised some money for such a wonderful charity.”
