Racking up the miles for countryside cause

STAFF from Savills in Bell Street helped raised nearly £60,000 for Countryside Learning by taking part

STAFF from Savills in Bell Street helped raised nearly £60,000 for Countryside Learning by taking part in a charity challenge.

This required them to travel from town to country, coast and back again, using a range of non-motorised means including cycling, walking, swimming, riding, rowing and running.

The event took place a few weeks ago and saw Savills teams ending up back at headquarters in Margaret Street.

Alison Bird, of Savills Reading, and Dee Kehoe, of Savills Henley, were two of those who took part — each walking 24 miles of the Thames Path.

Alison Bird said: “Countryside Learning is a charity very close to our hearts. It has been a pleasure to be involved in this latest fundraising challenge despite the pouring rain on our stretch of the journey!”



Countryside Learning has one aim — to educate, inform and inspire children, parents and teachers so that they can enjoy and appreciate the countryside whilst gain a greater understanding of the wide range of issues surrounding it.
