Redland area account manager hikes Hadrian’s Wall
Published: 14 July, 2016
Redland’s area account manager for Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, Rob McGuire, has fulfilled a lifetime ambition – and raised more than £800 for charity – by walking 96 miles along Hadrian’s Wall in just five days.
“I’d always wanted to walk the wall and when we decided we were going to go for it I thought I should raise some money for charity,” he said. “I thought of the Bamboozle Theatre Company because the group has done so much work with Lily, the daughter of my colleague Steve Smith”.
Mr Smith is Rob’s equivalent for the East Midlands, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, and his eldest daughter is quadriplegic as a result of perinatal asphyxia. He and his family have become very involved with the work of Bamboozle, which was founded in 1994 to bring magical memories, multi-sensory experiences to children and young people who have moderate to profound learning difficulties. Furthermore, it provides regular opportunities to meet, connect and relax with other families facing similar challenges.
