Careworker takes on The Freedom Trail!
12 March 2014
Antony Westerman, a care worker at Alne Hall, tells us why he is taking on the Freedom Trail trek in September:
‘After settling in at Alne Hall I wanted to know if there were any fundraising events Leonard Cheshire Disability were doing this year as I enjoy fundraising. I am already doing the Yorkshire Three Peaks for the Candlelighters charity but I’ve always wanted to do something more challenging. When I was told about The Freedom Trail it seemed perfect! It has that wartime meaning to it and I found this extra special having spent five years in the army as part of the Royal Engineers. The money I raise will all be going to Alne Hall, helping to complete the sensory garden project for the service users. I really like having events to train towards to keep me focused on my fitness like in the army and if I can do it raising money for a worthy cause at the same time, all the better.’
Join Antony on the Freedom Trail trek this summer and raise money for Leonard Cheshire Disability or a specific care home or service that is close to your heart.
The Freedom Trail trek follows one of the Second World War escape routes through the French Pyrenees and over the border into Spain. It passes by some incredible scenery as well as a crash site of a British Halifax bomber and various plaques and memorials.
