Julie makes great strides for Macmillan Cancer Support

Jet Aire’s Commercial Analyst, Julie Clayton, made some great strides in aid of charity when she walked 26 miles of Northumberland Coast in just under 12 hours to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Julie and her friend Jenny Sanderson, who works at Quorn Foods, started from Alnwick Castle at 9.40am and completed the route at Bamburgh around 9pm. They finished with sore limbs and blisters but the pain was certainly worth it: their efforts raised an incredible total of £1,023!

Julie said:

“Jenny persuaded me to do the walk – we both believe that MacMillan Cancer Support is a very worthy cause. Neither of us are keen walkers so it was quite a physical challenge but it was really satisfying to complete a marathon walk in one day. Some of the coastal scenery was stunning.”
