Paul's Great British Cat Walks

17 September 2020

October will be a busy month for Paul, the manager here at Dereham Adoption Centre. The centre has missed out on the majority of its usual fundraising opportunities this summer, due to the Covid induced cancellation of our usual events. In a attempt to offset a little of this fundraising deficit, Paul has set himself a series of walking challenges, hoping to catch the eye, and impress enough to earn some sponsorship donations. The month should see in excess of 200 miles walked, a London marathon entry, and various mountain peaks summited. 
Follow his progress on the Centre's Facebook page, and on his JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/paul-joe 

Paul’s main challenges will be to:

  • Walk 26.2 miles from his Dereham home to Beeston Bump on the Sheringham coast, on October 4, the virtual London Marathon Day.
  • Climb Scotland’s Ben Nevis on his stairs; 8,810 stairs without rest to ascend the height of Britain’s highest mountain.
  • Climb Welsh mount Snowdon, the highest beak in England and Wales twice in one day.
  • Conquer Northern Ireland’s highest peak Slieve Donard, as part of Cats Protection’s sponsored event.
