Walking challenge for the Blacksmiths Girls

A team at a public house in the Moorlands are putting their best feet forward during the current lockdown in order to raise lots of cash for charity.

A team at a public house in the Moorlands are putting their best feet forward during the current lockdown in order to raise lots of cash for charity.

Danni Molloy, who has run the Blacksmiths Arms in Kingsley, explained: “Last year our beloved little local pub went viral for our tribute to our fallen heroes for Remembrance Day.

This year we changed our tribute, and have been in the local news, but the current situation is overshadowing this, and put a stopper to us being able to fundraise for an armed forces charity due to restrictions we face, and then being told my pub had to close for four weeks. So we have decided upon a challenge.

The Blacksmiths Girls would like to attempt to raise £1,000 to donate to The Lee Rigby Foundation.”

The Lee Rigby Foundation aims to provide a support network for bereaved military families, veterans families and serving military families.

Danni explained that she, and fellow Blacksmiths Girls Laura and Debbie, will be walking four miles a day during the current lockdown.

She said: “Our challenge is – for the whole of this new lockdown we will be walking four miles a day around the villages Kingsley Holt and Kingsley, starting from The Blacksmiths Arms, and finishing at The Blacksmiths, equalling around 108 miles total.

It wouldn’t be us if we didn’t give something back, so for the last day (December 1) whom ever makes the highest donation by November 27 gets to choose our fancy dress for the last walk.

Remember it will be cold, please be kind to us, something warm would be nice.

We will be going live and taking photos each day, updating everyone on our progress. If you see us, please beep or wave and give us some moral support and encouragement.

All current government guidelines will be adhered to of course.

Any donation will be gratefully received. Donations can be posted through the Blacksmiths Arms letterbox and I’m in the process of setting up a PayPal to make donations too. Thank you everyone in advance.”

Anyone wishing to donate to the Blacksmiths Girls efforts for the Lee Rigby Foundation can do so by going online to:www.crowdfunder.co.uk/the-blacksmiths-girls-walk-for-charity.
