Two blokes, two weeks and 142 miles across the Cornish Coastline

Two dedicated supporters of Wooden Spoon took on a challenge to walk 142 miles for the children’s charity of rugby. Ian Eslick and Mark Bryant completed their two week Cornish Coastline Walk from North Cornwall to Lands End to raise vital funds for Wooden Spoon.

The walk was part of a life-time personal challenge for Ian who wanted to fulfil his goal of walking the full length of the Cornish Coastline – a perfect opportunity to also raise money for charity and enjoy the amazing coastal scenery.

Ian and Mark were joined by friends Kenny Harris and Keith Huxtable, and members of their family’s were there to give them support and encouragement at various points along the way. Redruth RFC, the RNLI and the Wooden Spoon Cornwall committee also took the opportunity to welcome them when they arrived at Perranporth Beach during their journey.

On completion of their gruelling challenge, Ian said: “Very emotional reaching Lands End with three great mates and also great to have my family there. The walk was challenging, tough, fabulous scenery, long steep climbs & rewarding. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks to everyone who kindly sponsored us!”

Ian and Mark hope to raise over £5,000 from the challenge and impressively were in the top 1% of Just Giving donors just before their trip (out of 872,627), an incredible achievement! Very well done to the guys on their great accomplishment.
