Alexia and the South Coast Challenge…

One of our Director’s, Alexia is setting herself a challenge this year, specifically the South Coast Challenge. This means she’s walking 54 km, in one day, along the South Coast from Eastbourne to Brighton. Now, we all like a walk in the park in the sunshine, but this seems a bit extreme so we caught up with her to find out more…

Tell us more about what you’re doing

I’m walking 33.5 miles in a day alongside my childhood friend Laura. We think it’ll be about 10 hours walking, so with a few food, drink and blister stops, a 12 hour day. I’m hoping the scenery will be beautiful, which has to help, and its August bank holiday weekend so fingers crossed for a dry day - I’ve cursed it now!

Sounds like you’ll need to do a bit of training?

Yes, we’ve got a 16 week training plan in place, which will build up our endurance and fitness etc. I’m off to Snowdon in May so hoping the hills will give me the kick start I need.

This all begs the question as to why?

I’ll be walking with Laura, in memory of her daughter Rose and raising money for SANDS – the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity. They’re a National Charity who do the most amazing work in supporting families across the UK. To read more about our story check out our just giving page here…

What are you doing to fundraise?

Alongside the Just Giving Page I’ve got a Easter Raffle set up at the office, which is proving to be winner, of course the prize is Chocolate! We are running a raffle and planning a Great British Bake Off style Cake Sale in the Summer. I’ll keep you updated with progress. If anyone can help in supporting us or with a raffle prize then do get in touch

We think this is great. Good luck to Alexia and Laura with their training and in all their fundraising activities – we’ll be cheering you over the finish line! If you can help support this worthy cause then do get in touch with us on or call on 01892 263 359
