Bacon and Company has raised over £1,200 for Macmillan Cancer Support in a marathon trek.
The Mighty Hike from Brighton to Eastbourne proved to be quite a challenge for Hayley, Simon and Chloe. After months of training the three eager candidates set off from Brighton Racecourse at 7.30am to start the 26-mile challenge across the South Downs Way. After 18 miles the trio were feeling pretty pleased with themselves but their confidence waned as they endured the peaks and dips of the Seven Sisters cliffs. The end was finally in sight at 4.45pm, with a glass of bubbly waiting for them at the finish line. The Bacon and Company team were thrilled to come 113th out of over 600 participants, and are now looking at other ways of raising money for charity.
Most of the funds raised came from the generous sponsorship of clients, friends and family, so Hayley, Simon and Chloe want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported them. The money raised in total so far is £158,000, with an anticipated £350,000 set to smash last year’s target.
