High Spirits for the Bridgnorth Walk

Damp conditions didn’t dampen spirits for the Bridgnorth Lions Walk, the first to be run by the Lions, as over 620 walkers left the high street to embark on the 22 mile walk up the Brown Clee and back. In one of the very fastest walk times in the walk’s 51-year history, Andrew Simmons just snatched victory from his old rival Andy Rawlings who has won the event a record 19 times.

First woman home was Lorna Wickens and the junior walk was won by Andrew Jones, with his sister Louise as first girl. The biggest fundraising team was Rupert’s Revenge – raising funds for treatment for
young Rupert Beckett. Over £100,000 was raised in total. Well done all – the walkers, the volunteers and the Bridgnorth Lions who made it all happen.
