Teenager walks miles for North London Hospice
Dylan Went, aged 14 decided to put his Christmas holiday’s to good use by raising money for the Hospice. Dylan, together with his parents walked 23 miles along the River Lea from Chesnut to Greenwich, in memory of his grandmother Yvonne Went who was cared for the Hospice back in 2005.
Dylan’s father Gavin said: ”The walk went very well. We walked along the river Lea from Cheshunt all the way to Greenwich finishing at the Cutty Sark. We were lucky with the weather and despite the lack of practice and subsequent sore joints we finished in a little over seven and a half hours.”
Dylan said: “Firstly I’d like to thank everyone for their help, support & donations. I did this walk to raise money for the North London Hospice as my nanny Eve passed away there. On behalf of all my family I’d like to thank all the staff at North London Hospice for the incredible work they do. The walk was over 20 miles and I really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to raising more money for the Hospice in the future.”
Dylan has raised a total of £505 for North London Hospice.
