Staff from a Norwich-based accountancy firm are gearing up for a 30-mile trek along the north Norfolk coast - in just 12 hours.

Aston Shaw staff are planning the epic journey to raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). It will mark the end of a series of challenges they have done in aid of the charity over the past three years, with an overall goal of £30,000. And some employees, not content with a mere 30 miles, are aiming to walk 50 miles in just 24 hours.

The July 1 trek will start from Burnham Deepdale and finish in Cromer.

Other events undertaken so far as part of the ongoing fundraiser have included a skydive at Beccles Airfield, bake sales, dress-down days and a ‘24 peaks in 24 hour’ challenge. EACH is raising money to build a new children’s hospice, to be called the Nook.
