Hughes Electrical employee set to put best foot forward to raise money for special charity

In Industry News On

A man from Hunstanton will walk nearly 100 miles in just five days at the end of August to raise money for a charity very close to his heart.

Nigel Jeavons will tackle the Peddars Way & National Coastal Path, starting at Rushford on August 20 and finishing in Cromer on August 24 in aid of Dementia UK as he lost his mother to the illness a few years ago.

Nigel, who works for Hughes Electrical in Hunstanton, will be walking between 15 and 19 miles a day. He will be supported by a number of colleagues who will be alongside him each day: David Youngs from Wisbech; Neil Woodhouse from Fakenham; Stuart Baker from Swaffham; Ray Harkins from King’s Lynn; Mark Morley from Newmarket and area manager, Malcolm Tuff.

“Dementia UK is very special to me and I am aiming to raise over £1,000 to help it continue with the great work it does helping people living with the condition through its Admiral Nurse service and Helpline – 0800 888 6678,” said Nigel.

“I have been training for some time and am now up to 12 miles a day. I know it will not be easy as much of it will be walking on uneven ground so I am really thankful to my colleagues who are giving up their time to support me each and every step of the way – it will be a real team effort.

“That thanks also extends to Barclays in Hunstanton who have agreed to match fund anything Gary Pearce from the branch raises, up to £500. I am delighted he will be walking with me on August 22.

“I am sure I will be very, very grateful to see Cromer Pier on that Friday!”
