Nigel Hopwood recently walked the entire Pennine Way for Epilepsy Research UK and we’re delighted to have received £2,473.75

The Pennine Way starts in Edale in Derbyshire’s Peak District and finishes in Kirk Yetholm, just over the border in Scotland, covering an official 256 miles, or probably more when you take into account the bits off route to and from accommodation.

Nigel says, “After leaving Edale on 11 July, I’ll be ascending a total of around 32,000 feet and covering around 20 miles a day including a whopping 27 miles on day two!  It will be great if I can find some time to appreciate some of the scenery as well.  In terms of weather, July is the driest month on average along the route, although I am expecting the rain to make at least one appearance – please not day two!

Given that this is very much a personal challenge, once again it seems a highly appropriate opportunity to raise some money for a good cause.  This time I’ve chosen Epilepsy Research UK given my own daughter’s recent experience with the condition. ”

Nigel wrote  a daily blog which is an interesting and informative insight into the whole experience and a very enjoyable read!
