We are thrilled that Symon Hughes has undertaken this epic challenge and is hoping to raise £3,000 for Bleakholt!

He is doing a 380 mile walk from Manchester Cathedral to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, starting on 21st February 2022. Symon is a massive animal lover: “I’m just a huge animal lover, especially dogs, and I’ve seen what Bleakholt do and just really wanted do this for them.”

Symon has a GoFundMe page so if you would like to support him and raise money for our animals, please click here

Thank you so much to everyone who donates and Symon said: “Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me. I am a massive animal lover, especially dogs. Every penny will help.”

All the money Symon raises (including Gift Aid) will come to the Sanctuary and he is even paying for his overnight accomodation himself.

We think you will agree that this is all pretty amazing! Good luck to Symon and we know he’s going to smash it. Have fun along the way too Sy!
