We’re lacing up our walking boots for our Charity Walk in aid of Shelter Cymru. We regularly help our customers when they are without heating, and we’d like to help those without a place to call their own. On Saturday, 9th June, Evans Maintenance employees will be walking 10 miles on the Offa’s Dyke Path from Llandegla to the Jubilee Tower on Moel Famau.
We have our fingers crossed for nice weather on the day of our walk, but those on the streets often don’t have a chance to get out of any bad weather. Homelessness and rough sleeping are on the rise in our region, and local services are dealing with increasing numbers of cases. Shelter Cymru offers advice and assistance for those facing homelessness.
The Offa’s Dyke Path runs 177 miles from Sedbury Cliffs near Chepstow to Prestatyn along the 8th Century feature known as Offa’s Dyke. Most likely built as a border by the Mercian king Offa, the section we will be walking takes in at least one Iron Age hill fort as well as beautiful countryside with a few hills thrown in to boot. We’re looking forward to the view from the biggest hill on our walk – Moel Famau – the highest point in the Clwydian range and part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s also the point at which we’ll finish and make tracks for the pub!
