Rising to the Malvern Hills Challenge


One of our young people down at Lakeside wanted to start walking up the Malvern Hills more regularly, which he started to do with a member of staff. During one hike, he mentioned that he wanted to walk the length of the Malvern hills and found out by himself about the Malvern Hills Challenge, raising money for Help for Heroes. 

Staff members then registered for the event and then we began weekly practice hikes, hiking up different parts of the hills each week. 

The day of the event – the 18th September 2021, our intrepid young person hiked the length of the Malvern’s (18km) from Chase End to North Hill in just over 5 hours and raised approximately £300 for the charity. 

What an absolute star , congratulations!
