#CaptainTom100 – Staff team 100 mile walk Challenge


10 staff, including our President Gill, bookkeeper Christine and Volunteer Jim, gave up their bank holiday Monday to take on Dyscover’s Captain Tom 100 Challenge, a national initiative designed to help individuals and groups raise funds for their chosen charity.
Liz planned a route of 10 miles between our two venues, the Kingston Quaker Centre and Leatherhead Court, so between us the team covered 100 miles!

Stops along the route helped keep us all going – volunteer Dee cheered us from her houseboat on the Thames, and John and Barbara Mitchell treated us each to a shot of homemade Damson Gin at our halfway mark. We are also grateful to the pubs who provided all-important loo stops, and to those on the route who spotted our banner and kindly added to the collection bucket.
Support continues to come in to Dyscover’s just giving page too – we are thrilled to have reached more than £3700 in donations to date, and there’s still donate.
