Spalding Rugby Club supporter is raising money by walking 100km
A rugby club supporter has raised more than £1,000 by walking 100km.
Peter Jullien has put his best foot forward to start a mammoth challenge to support Spalding Rugby Club as part of his own 70th birthday celebrations.
He is aiming to walk 10 laps around the club’s new ground in Drain Bank North over the coming days.
Mr Jullien, who started the challenge on Friday, is hoping to raise £3,500 to fund a new shower block at the club’s training ground, which is off the A16 on the outskirts of Spalding.
He is aiming to finish the challenge on Sunday, May 2, at 11.30am.
Mr Jullien said: “We are starting to play out the next phase of development which is the building of permanent changing rooms facilities and replacing the modular units.
“I have been out for a few walks during lockdown. I think I am relatively fit.”
Over the coming days, Mr Jullien will be undertaking 10 laps of around 22 acres of rugby club ground, which equates to 100km.
This challenge has
also been inspired by another great walker, Capt Sir Tom Moore, who raised millions for the NHS by walking around his garden in Bedford.
