The Mindstep Trekkers, led by Conveyancing Foundation chairman Lloyd Davies, hiked over 90 miles in five days along the historic Hadrian’s Wall, pushing the fundraising pot past the £30,000 mark. All the funds raised by the Appeal will be donated to the official DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal to provide food, water, shelter and healthcare to those fleeing the terrible conflict in the Ukraine and desperately in need of help. The appeal has also been boosted by donations from new property industry sponsors PEXA and Groundsure who have both donated £1000.
In a separate challenge, hiking 177 miles along the famous Offa’s Dyke national trail, the Mindstep Trekkers raised money for St Alban’s RC School in Pontypool to complete a dream project to open a state of the art health and wellbeing suite.
The facility is dedicated to a former Head of Sixth Form and PE teacher, Frances Margerison, and Max Davies, the eldest son of Lloyd Davies who died aged 22 following a short battle with clinical depression.
St Alban’s Headmaster, Stephen Lloyd, said: “I can’t thank Lloyd and the Mindstep Foundation enough because of the impact this will have on the lives of our pupils.”
