The Consortium Prove They're Up to the Challenge

Heavy rain and plenty of mud wasn't enough to put The Consortium off the White Horse Challenge over the weekend of 6th/7th July. Here's their official report...

Staff from The Consortium put their best feet forward over the weekend to take part in a 55 mile walk to raise money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

A total of 22 volunteers took part in the two day challenge which takes in Wiltshire’s white horses along its route.

Six staff took on the full 55 miles with another four completing it in relay teams. Three people finished

the One Day Challenge of 29 miles and a further nine took part in the Family Walk on Sunday.

Unfortunately the weather was not kind and the walkers endured every kind of rain from drizzle to torrential downpours! Despite this, the mud and many blisters, they walked over 500 miles in total!

The sponsorship money is still coming in but they the final amount is likely to be an impressive £3,600 which will help to keep the Wiltshire Air Ambulance flying. Well done to all who took part!

    Those conditions look appalling! Well done everyone for keeping going and keeping Wiltshire's Air Ambulance flying.
