5 days, 5 countries, 500 miles
The team raised an incredible £60,115!

The team from JW Ostendorf and Wickes completed the trip from the JW Ostendorf head office in Coesfeld, Germany to the Wickes head office in Harrow, England arriving at 3pm on Monday 16th April after 5 wet, cold, long but on occasions very funny days on the road.

The team pushed themselves to cover an average of grueling 100 miles per day, across flat, but windy Northern Europe and up through the hills of Kent before making their way through central London and sleeping each night under the stars in nice comfortable sleeping bags.

Learn more about the team and what motivated them to take on this challenge to raise vital funds to beat blood cancers. You can also follow their route and map and still have a chance to support them through their Just Giving page.
