Fintan has brought our 2015 challenges to a magnificent end!!

Fintan O’Regan completed an 84-mile walk along Hadrian’s Wall in 5 days, finishing exhausted but in high spirits after smashing the most gruelling of Coast to Coast courses. He started on the West Coast in Bowness in Solway and finishing on the East coast at Wallsend, Tyne and Wear some 5 days later. He and his fellow walking companion Graham, managed an average 6 hours per day. There was lots of wind and rain and the occasional snowflake along the way, to remind them that autumn was closing in. In addition the darker evenings meant they needed to start early so they could finish the days walk in daylight. Fintan also stuck to a personal pledge, which was to drink as many pints each night as they had walked in total that day. Good lad; the Irish cousins would be proud!
Fintan sent a message to all O2e ers: “Thanks to all who have supported us on the journey. We finished at 2.00pm on Saturday 31 October after walking 84 miles and with lots of cool memories”. Thank you for all your support.
Huge achievement Fintan ( drinking 84 pints that is! ) Look forward to sharing another one with you at the Gala Dinner-Top Drawer challenge mate.
Many thanks to those of you that have coughed up for the dinner-for those still to do so little reminder:
As mentioned we are coming towards the end of another brilliant campaign. Please make final push to collect any outstanding sponsorship monies so we can close the books off.
Many thanks as always ,
