Yesterday (22 August) Mike Joiner undertook his personal fundraising effort on behalf of the Harpenden Trust (News, 23 July).
Mike, along with his pet dog Sweep, completed as many loops of Harpenden Common in his sturdy chair as they could possibly manage. Mike actually completed 6.5 miles in his chair, far more than his usual daily 1 mile, or 30 minutes - along with a bucket collection as he undertook his challenge. On the day the weather and soft ground were ideal. Mike’s message at the end of the day was to say he was very tired.
The Harpenden Trust is very grateful to Mike for his amazing effort on behalf of the Trust. The money will be used by the Care Fund to help support families and individuals in Harpenden. Thank you also to Sarah Harris and Glyn Goodwin who provided invaluable support, handing out flyers, during part of Mike’s Challenge.
Mike is still collecting via his GoFundMe page – currently £1,410. Please look at Mike’s story (gofund.me/ceacda53) and donate.
