250km Hebridean Way Fundraising Walk

  • by

Having been deprived by 18 months of lockdown of the opportunity to fundraise, Past President Richard Power has decided to walk the fantastic 250km Hebridean Way for charity with his partner Trish.

Starting from Vatersay in the south, crossing ten islands via six causeways and two ferries, this fantastic walk will take them 12 days to finish as Stornoway in the north.

Richard and Trish are raising money for:

Our Club President’s chosen Charity, The Ectodermal Dysplasia Society, and
to provide ongoing support for our Orthopaedic Surgery project in Gondar, Ethiopia.

The Ectodermal Dysplasia Society is a charity dedicated to improving the health and well-being of people whose lives are affected by Ectodermal Dysplasia (ED).

The Leicester Gondar Orthopaedic Partnership established an Orthopaedic Surgery in Gondar, Ethiopia.

Unfortunately, ongoing conflict in Ethiopia means the surgery has been needed more than we expected. Now, having carried out 2000 operations in just nine months, they are rapidly running out of implants. Richard and Trish’s walk will help fund the purchase of more implants.

To share their amazing journey with us back home, Richard will be posting daily updates along with photos and videos. You can follow their journey by clicking the big purple button below to go to Richard’s JustGiving page or by liking our Club’s Facebook page
