Ambitious new target set for DMH Stallard's charity trek for St. Catherine's Hospice

04 Dec 2020

A number of weeks ago, we announced that we are supporting our charity partner, St. Catherine's Hospice, by trekking 4,326km from the North Pole to St. Catherine's Hospice in Crawley to raise money for the amazing work the charity does.

We started the trek on 28 October 2020 with the target of covering the distance by Christmas Eve. The response to this challenge from DMH Stallard staff has been incredible. Thanks to their unbelievable efforts, we have averaged over 1,000km a week, and on 21 November 2020, we reached St. Catherine’s! This far exceeded our expectations and meant we had completed the initial challenge a month before Christmas!

So, we decided to keep our efforts and our fundraising going by agreeing to deliver Santa and his sleigh back to the North Pole before Christmas. This means we had another 4,326km to cover from 22 November onwards.

In total, we will now need to cover 8,652km to complete both legs of the Trek. Over the last two weeks, we have been averaging 1,300km a week and as of 30 November 2020, we had completed 1,874.3km of the return journey, meaning we had covered a total of 6,200.3km!

If we keep up this rate then we should complete the Trek over the weekend of 12-13 December 2020. With the St. Catherine's Hospice Midnight Walk taking place on Saturday 12 December, in which DMH Stallard staff will be taking part, this is a very achievable target completion date.
