500 miles…in one afternoon

How do you walk 500 miles in one afternoon? Marion Orr had the answer – get around 100 people (and a dog) together and walk 5 miles each. The walk took place on a pretty damp day but everyone seemed to have a great time and the walkers were all smiles. Marion and her team did fantastically – raising almost £2,500, including £700 match funding from the Royal Bank of Scotland, organised by Louise Wood.

Marion heard about 500 miles at an achievement ceremony at Braes High School, which her children Caroline and Kenneth. attended. The School donated £525 to 500 miles this year, mainly raised through the sale of their yearbook.
