Physical Pain, Endurance and Raising Money For Charity

L-R Martin Ward, MD and David Jones, Financial Adviser

The leader and organiser of The Long Walk Home, Mark Tonks has described the efforts of the walkers, including our own Managing Director, Martin Ward and Financial Adviser, David Jones as “Absolutely heroic”.

The 40 miles in one day walk for charity took place on Sunday 6th May and whilst this is difficult enough, this year the blistering heat of record temperatures for the early May Bank Holiday, soon made the walk into a mission for survival!  Martin and David walked for 11 hours non-stop, achieving the distance of 40 miles.  About a mile from the end Martin’s hands had swelled to three times their normal size, and David, who is a member of the Army Reserve, was helping to treat people for blisters and painful feet.

“The banter kept us going,” says Four Oaks MD, Martin Ward “But it was very hot which really slowed everyone down. The support-team kept having to go and get more water to help us keep going!  We are bruised and blistered, but delighted to be part of the 50+ group of walkers that have raised £10,000 for charity with more donations and sponsorship still to come in.”

The Long Walk Home is raising money for the Buddy Bag Foundation and Footsteps Counselling and Support. Buddy Bag Foundation is also Four Oaks Financial Services chosen charity.
