Volunteers from New Directions put on their walking boots to raise funds with a sponsored walk over the Peak District on 3rd June 2018. Over £1000 was raised toward specialist equipment for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and autism to improve computer based learning, internet access and develop social media skills and safety. Organisers Simon and Jill were joined by Ross, Becky, Lee, Roly, Rebecca, Keiran, Abbi, Janet and Roddie in the walk over The Roaches and through Lud’s Church. The minibus was kindly donated by Warwickshire County Council.
Simon said, “It was a challenging day, but a huge success which we are very proud of.”
