Sandstone Trail 2011
£2,333 raised for charity!
We’ve been fundraising again…
On 1st October 2011 a team from John Heath Insurance successfully completed the entire length of the Sandstone Trail in Cheshire. This is a gorgeous 34 mile stretch of hills in the Cheshire countryside from Frodsham to Whitchurch. We started at 5:45am and finished some 15 and a half hours later at 9:15pm!
