Bakers Dolphin supports
charity’s biggest walk yet

Bakers Dolphin took hundreds of people to their starting points for the annual Weston Hospicecare Mendip Challenge.

It’s the second year running that the Weston-super-Mare-based operator has supported the event, which saw nearly 1,100 people tackle 10, 20 and 30-mile treks over the Mendip Hills – 221 more than last year.

Six Bakers Dolphin coaches shuttled walkers to the start of the 30-mile walk; there were seven coach-loads for the start of the 20-mile walk and 13 for the start of the shorter event.

The event is the charity’s annual fundraiser and raises money for its work providing palliative care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in Weston-super-Mare and surrounding areas.

Amanda Harrington, Bakers Dolphin Sales and Marketing Director, says: “Our staff told us that they thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in the amazing atmosphere surrounding the event last year, when we first got involved, so we didn’t hesitate to get involved again and play our part in what was an outstanding effort for all involved.”
