30 Miles for 30 Years

30 Miles for 30 Years Nightsafe’s Wayne Bowman and Diane Page put their best foot forward on Saturday – walking 30 miles in celebration of the charity’s 30-year anniversary.

The employees took part in the Three Towers Challenge walk organised for the
Blackburn-based charity. They smashed their target of £500, raising over £1,000 for the charity.

The duo trekked over the West Pennine Moors to the three towers: Rivington Pike to Winter Hill, Peel Tower to Ramsbottom, and Darwen Tower to Darwen

Wayne and Diane started the 30-mile hike in blustery weather at 6am and completed it within 13 hours.

Wayne, the charity’s LEAP (Life skills, Education, Aspirations Project) co-ordinator, 38, from Blackburn, and Office and Finance Manager Diane, 53, from Rishton, are avid walkers and have completed many other walking challenges to raise money for Nightsafe in the past.

After completing the walk Wayne said: “We both feel very tired and achy but wouldn’t change it for the world. Thank you to everyone who donated and for all the support we have had. All the money raised supports our work with homeless young people.”

Nightsafe CEO Jan Larkin praised the pair for taking on such a challenge.

She said: “What an incredible achievement, and a wonderful way to celebrate our 30th anniversary whilst raising money for Nightsafe. Congratulations Wayne and Diane. You really are Nightsafe Heroes.”

Without the help of our supporters, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

Thank you to all our #NightsafeHeroes.
