Paul Hartley has found the picturesque way to support our virtual Night Strider challenge.
Paul is planning to walk the ten miles along the spectacular North Sea coast from his family’s caravan in the North Yorkshire village of Burniston to Ravenscar.
Paul usually takes part in Burncross pub The Acorn’s charity fundraising events but with all those on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic, he decided to go his own way and support St Luke’s.
2020 would have marked Night Strider’s sixth anniversary but when the pandemic took hold, a new plan had to be developed - and Night Strider has gone virtual!
The Night Strider virtual challenge - sponsored by Pricecheck and Gripple - will see participants register free of charge to do their own fundraising event any time between between Saturday October 3 - the evening that Night Strider would have taken place - and Saturday October 31.
“I’ve had friends and family who have been patients at St Luke’s so I know what a good job they do,” Paul said.
“It’s about a ten mile walk from Burniston to Ravenscar and I’ve not set myself a definite date yet - I want to make sure the weather’s good!”
Paul has already raised more than 80 per cent of his initial £200 target and anybody who wants to support him on his walk can visit Paul Hartley
