On Monday, 8th August, Andrew Gartside, Chris Eyres, John Walsh, and 14 year old Thomas Wallwork were given a rousing send off by Lofty, Big Sam, and the Bolton Wanderers First Team squad as they departed from the Reebok Stadium on a 100 mile walk to Villa Park.
Ably encouraged by ex professional footballer, Steve Kindon, who drove the support vehicle the grouped walked from Bolton via Warrington, Newcastle-under-Lyne and Wolverhampton - raising £20,000 in the process.
Thank you to our main sponsors, Warburtons and Benfield Commercial Vehicles; BWFC and the intrepid walkers who joined us at various points to keep up our spirits!
A special thanks to Steve Kindon, without whose scathing wit and impolite comments we might not have made it!
He might even be invited to join the sherpas on the Himalayan Trek in May 2006.
