We plan to walk, cycle, jog or run a total of 2,874 miles to keep fit and to raise funds for the restoration project.

Our Covid Challenge


To walk, cycle, jog or run a total of  2,874 miles 



Due to the current need to stay home, we are not able to do any physical work on our restoration project -

but we do need to keep safe &  fit!


What are we going to do?

We would like supporters and volunteers to agree take a portion of our total target of 2874 miles !

each of us will  cover a set mileage, over a set number of days,  all based around the theme of 2874 

- for example you may agree to cover 74 miles over 28 days

- either walking, jogging, running or cycling - then seek sponsorship! 

- involve friends and family - anyone can help complete your mileage

In this way we will be taking our Covid safe, daily exercise, giving ourselves a target and  raising funds.


How are we going to collect the sponsorship?


To make things as friendly  as possible, we have set up a

"Give as You Live" donation page -

supporters can log-on to this page and make their donation.  

Of course, for anyone who does not wish to use the internet we are always more than happy to take a cheque.

The Donation page can be found 



We will be updating progress on the website


Two Trustees, David Holmes and David Foster have started the ball rolling -

each has agreed to cover 74 miles over 28 days and they are now busy finding sponsors.  

They are both only too happy to receive sponsorship from anyone unable to undertake the activity.  

Only 2,726 miles to go!
