'Hadrian's Wall Walk' in memory of Mel Holmes
CWU members Steve Rowlands and Marc Pastorelli are taking on the 'Hadrian's Wall Walk' in memory of Imelda Holmes and in aid of CWU Humanitarian Aid (CWUHA).
Mel, who worked for CWU and tragically passed away in July this year, always supported CWUHA. She would have loved to travel on a humanitarian aid convoy, but did not drive. Her cunning plan was to buy an item that was desperately needed and then possibly fly out to help deliver it.
They will help make Mel's dream come true
Carl Webb, chair of the CWUHA, said: "Steve and Marc are hoping to raise enough money to buy equipment for the disabled children centre in Moldova that CWUHA are helping renovate and for our school in Africa in Mel's memory. So in away they will help make Mel's dream come true."
Steve is a long-serving trustee of the CWUHA and Marc has been a supporter for many years. Between them they have raised thousands of pounds for the charity.
Steve and Marc will start the 73 mile walk early on Friday 10th October and are planning on finishing on Tuesday 14th October. They will follow the National Trail of Hadrian Wall from Newcastle to Carlisle. Though much of the route is reasonably flat, there is a 10-12 miles stretch that involves very steep climbing which Carl Webb says will be very difficult as "they are not getting any younger!"To sponsor Steve and Marc, please visit their fundraising page here
Ultimate Sacrifice for the children of Moshi Tanzania
Picture below is Stewart Pickup, BT engineer and passionate supporter of CWUHA. On Sunday 17th August 2014 Stewart competed in “The Ultimate Triathlon “This involved a 2.4 mile swim followed by a 112 mile bike ride and finished off with a marathon run over a 26.3 mile course. All of these gruelling tasks were completed over 13 hours, nonstop.
With the help of family and friends Stewart has raised in excess of £1700 in the form of sponsorship. Congratulations Stewart. The funds will be used to help a CWUHA supported school in Moshi Tanzania. Once rested Stewart will be flying out to Tanzania at the end of August, this will be in order to spend time as a teaching assistant amongst the very poor African village children who receive vitally needed education, previously denied to them. No doubt he will also be able to use his considerable practicable skills to help with tasks around the school. For more information please visit: www.cwuha.org
