On Sunday 17th October 2021 staff from Quickmove Properties set out to walk 26-miles along the canal pathway from Devizes to Bath, raising £3,750 for a local cause. After little training, the team powered through injury, blisters, twisted ankles, wasp stings and angry swans to complete this demanding task in 12 hours.
After 25 miles a week for 5 weeks and the equivalent of 23 marathons, the team reached their target of 623 miles and raised an amazing £3,360. Jacqui from Splitz visited Quickmove to accept the cheque and shared with us how this will boost their work.
“The money raised by Quickmove has been put towards our volunteer Buddy Scheme. This is a group of dedicated volunteers that provide 1-1 emotional support, empathetic listening, information and advocacy for individuals in recovery from the trauma of domestic abuse, once intensive support has ended.”
