Burnham-On-Sea fundraisers stride out for a dozen charities

Two fundraisers from Burnham and Highbridge have decided to make 2013 a year of change and challenges by setting themselves fitness tasks to raise money for a dozen charities.

Nicola Noad and Tamara Ellis made a new year’s resolution to get healthy and in turn came up with their very own project called Challenge 12.

Nicola, from Sparks Way in Highbridge and Tamara, from Highbridge Road in Burnham, have decided to take on 12 challenges in 12 months, to help 12 charities and raise their target of £1,200.

They will be raising money for Weston Hospicecare, Secret World Wildlife Rescue centre in East Huntspill, the RNLI, Weston’s Freewheelers and Children’s Hospice South West.

Other groups benefiting will be Save the Children, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Cancer UK, Meningitis UK, Sport Relief, Alice Escapes and a charity which is currently being set up called Bottle Stop.

Nicola said: "While trying to get fit we wanted something to keep us motivated and have something to aim for. The challenges are relatively small ones, but still quite challenging for us."

"We hope as our fitness improves this year, next year we shall continue this project and our challenges will get bigger and better."

The latest challenge will be held this Sunday (February 24th) when the duo will walking from Burnham to Brean along the beach in aid of the RNLI, starting at 11am.
