Three intrepid AfriCat supporters braved the elements and took part in the Walk 4 Wildlife 2017 Night Walk in the New Forest that began at 10pm on Saturday evening 28th October and went through to 6am on Sunday morning.
That was the time that it took to complete the 20 miles through England’s newest National Park.
Georgina, Andrea and Janet at the beginning of their 20 mile walk. The three were all raising money for AfriCat. Andrea and Janet had both grown up in the New Forest and felt it was the natural place for them to take part in the Walk 4 Wildlife 2017.
Walk 4 Wildlife 2017 organised a number of events throughout the country for wildlife charities to raise money and publicity for them.
Janet’s husband, Carey, had taken part in the first walk of the Walk 4 Wildlife 2017, which took place on the South Downs earlier in the summer.
We would like to thank all the walkers for their efforts – we know the walks were long and all of you gave up your own time to undertake training to ensure that you could complete this challenge. Thanks also go to the Walk 4 Wildlife 2017 organisers – Mark and Mike – for the success of the walks this year.
Funds raised by Janet and Carey are going to help the AfriCat North Projects including the AfriCat Lion Guards.
