Local trading partner Mark Stickley, and daughter Lauren, recently completed a 106km Isle of Wight Challenge for charity, raising £1500 approx between them! They completed the challenge in approximately 30 hours (including stops) and Mark admits the challenge was a hard one!
He commented “It was by far the most difficult challenge that I have ever experienced, due to mainly walking 70km with a damaged knee and trekking 18km in darkness along coastal paths about 100ft above the sea”.
SEP sponsored Mark & Lauren £100 for their efforts and were delighted to hear the news they had both completed the challenge, despite many others dropping out. “As it was for charity, which is very poignant to my family, there was no way that we were going to pull out, although many people did. I think the thought of having to return as a failure kept me going” he admitted.
We’d just like to use this chance to say a BIG congratulations to Mark & Lauren for their tremendous efforts and wish them both well - we look forward to hopefully sponsoring more events in the future!
