With a target of £500 Alan set off on Saturday 30 th April at 6am on a route that took him via South Africa Lodge and Marula Lodge in Surrey. Each home had asked residents to get involved in making posters to encourage Alan on his way and gave him a welcoming party on arrival which included our CEO, Johann van Zyl.
Alan took in numerous sites on route including Fratton Park, the Chilten Hills, waterfalls and finally after, 9hrs 43mins in the saddle, the pub where he enjoyed a well-deserved pint!
Johann van Zyl, said: “What Alan has done is wonderful and I know that the staff at South Africa Lodge really appreciate it. It was great to see him at Marula Lodge and thank him in person for this charitable act”.
Well Done Alan!
