Eddisons East Midlands team’s 47-mile walk beats fundraising target to raise over £14k for charity

Property group Eddisons’ eastern regional offices in Peterborough, Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds joined forces last week to complete the 47-mile Norfolk Coast Path from Hunstanton to Cromer. They completed the challenge in just 24hrs and have raised a staggering £14,000 for their nominated charity, Sue Ryder.

Inspired by their friend David Park, a director in Eddisons’ Peterborough building and project consultancy team who was sadly diagnosed with cancer in 2021. The team set a target of raising £10,000 for Sue Ryder, the charity that provides expert palliative care to people living with life-limiting conditions.

The intrepid colleagues set off from Hunstanton on the morning of 8 September, trekking throughout the night along the coastal route and reaching Cromer the following morning.

“It was tough, but we did it,” said Eddisons eastern region director Martin Hughes. “As a team, we were able to push through the night and keep our spirits up despite the aches and pains and a closed path which actually added to the 47 miles!

“We’re so proud and grateful for all the support we’ve received in helping us beat our £10,000 target and raise over £14,000 to provide help and much-needed expert end-of-life care for Sue Ryder.
