A quartet of big-hearted and fearless Lewis ladies are making their way to London to take on Britain’s greatest endurance events in aid of Bethesda Care Home and Hospice.
Rachel Campbell, Kathleen MacLeod, Sarah Bayfield and Donna MacLeod Bray have packed their trainers and crossed the Minch in anticipation of a gruelling 100K endurance walk from London to Brighton.
The epic walk starts this coming Saturday when the fearless foursome lace up in Richmond for the long trek to Brighton – alongside another 3,000 fundraisers. The ladies have been training hard since January despite the local weather chucking fits of horrendous weather conditions at them in spells.
Their longest training walk has been 46 miles in the Lews Castle Grounds; 9 laps! The team started at 5 am that day and for their first four hours walked in near constant hail showers.
The ladies insist that one of the main factors in keeping the L2B Team going strong has the support they have received from family, friends, work colleagues and the wider community.
They admit the support, kindness and generosity has overwhelmed them Bethesda Care Home and Hospice was chosen by the ladies as each are well aware of the kindness, care, respect, friendliness and professionalism that Bethesda offers to everyone.
