WALK IN SUPPORT OF THREATENED ACADEMICS

On 10th May, two CARA teams walked 20km and 60km across the South Downs.

The 2 teams completed the walk in 4 and 11 hours respectively, raising money and awareness in support of CARA's work today.

Despite the heat and hills, it was a really fantastic day. The highlight has to be the last 2 hours; I never thought walking with a head torch could be so hard! - Great to be walking for such a good cause. - Katie Eves
