Rainy Day Trust’s ceo Bryan Clover takes on hiking marathon

The historic charity set up in 1843 to aid those who work, or have worked within the home improvement or enhancement industries, sees its ceo Bryan Clover take on the 24 hour non-stop hike to raise more funds for its Apprenticeship Programme.

Bryan said: “On Friday 21 June 19, I will be undertaking a non-stop 24-hour hiking marathon, aiming to cover between 100km of The Ridgeway, starting west of Marlborough and finishing North East of Oxford.  I’ll be carrying everything that I need for the route including water, food and wet weather clothing; about 40lbs in all. I expect to burn something like 9,000 calories and take 70,000+ steps.  I am doing this hike as I want to draw attention to our apprenticeship programme and raise awareness of the support that we can give to apprentices in our industries.  Learning is a 24 hour process and apprentices keep learning at home after they have finished at work for the day. All of the sponsorship money raised will go to this programme.”

Alongside Lawsons Builders Merchants as lead sponsor, housewares industry colleagues are encouraged to donate to Bryan’s challenge efforts, and can do so by clicking here.

In April alone, the Rainy Day Trust has supported near to fifty apprentices.
