A Night to Remember!

by Rapid Welding 17. June 2014 15:48

Every now and again we like to bring you something a little different that isn't welding related, and when a member of the Rapid team gets up to something a bit special out of hours, we feel it is only right to share - with their permission, of course.

This weekend our lovely Marianne Edwards will be walking the walk from Worthing to Shoreham - a whopping 20 miles. And as if that isn't enough, she's doing it at midnight! 

Now, this isn't just a keep fit exercise, although Marianne and her very good friend Joby - who she has known since they were both 4 years old (collective Ahhhhh) - are no strangers to clocking up the miles. They started walking 8 years ago and each year have done a challenge together.

Joby & Marianne on their London to Brighton challenge last year - yes, you have read that correctly!

This year the challenge is a walk in aid of St Barnabas House - a service dedicated to giving local people the choice over where they receive end of life care. Over the last six years the walk has raised over £900,000, and this year the total amount raised is set to exceed £1 million! 

I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing Marianne, Joby, and their fellow lady walkers all the best for this coming weekend.  

Get those arms swinging and the tunes pumping girls!!
