Angus Loder and his father have completed the extraordinary task of walking the West Highland Highway. This brave pair of guys set off on Monday to complete the 96 mile challenge by Sunday the 20th of August.
”Before starting my third year at Eton College, I wanted to do something for a good cause during my long summer holidays. I will be going on a week long trip to Scotland where I will walk the West Highland Way and climb Ben Nevis at the end of the walk. In total I expect to walk roughly 155 kilometres and climb 1.5 kilometres.
The charity creates and cares for beautiful and accessible gardens within NHS Spinal Injury centres all over the UK. The next garden, due to open later this year, is at Stoke Mandeville Hospital which is where I was born.”
We’ve been keeping an eye out for all the updates on their facebook page. After a long, hard journey Angus’s father had posted:
“We are happy. Our journey is at an end.
Tomorrow morning we catch the citylink bus back to Glasgow and head south to the sun, dry clothes and a rest.
Angus has been a star and I hope we have raised lots of money for Horatio’s Garden. Thank you all for being so generous and I hope you have enjoyed reading about our journey. It has been fun.”
Angus has currently raised just over £1275.00. You can continue to help raise money for their target by visiting his BT mydonate Page.
Many congratulations and thanks to Angus and Sandy from everyone at Horatio’s Garden.
