Stepping Off With The Left

Stepping off with the Left…

The FHLBC hosted a charity walk in memory of brother Charles Wandrag who unfortunately took his own life after suffering with mental illness. On Saturday 29th June over 25 people joined together to raise awareness of mental health and many many more donated to our cause. The walk fell on the hottest day of the year, so with plenty of sun cream the group first headed for Old Gorhambury house. After a quick rest it was off to find the first pub and enjoy some cold refreshment. It was delightful to see Charles widow and mother in-law on the walk with us, making the day even more special. Once refreshed the group completed two more pubs and a rather large buffet before arriving at St Albans cathedral, members lit a candle for Charles and proceeded to view the Halsey (Charles mother lodge) emblem on the pulpit. After nearly 8 long hot miles, the gang returned to Ashwell House for a even bigger buffet (provided by Luke Crouch), a raffle and presentation. The grand total money raised is still ongoing as we are still accepting donations, however we have exceeded £3300 so far.
