Frank's hiking efforts will give Stourbridge charity a boost
5:35pm Friday 17th May 2013 in News
INTREPID Frank McGain-Harding will spend Whitsun week walking the 86 miles along Hadrian’s Wall Path to raise cash for Stourbridge charity No Limits Community Project.
Frank is chairman of the charity which works with people over 16 suffering from Able Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
His charity walks have become a vital fundraiser for the project and he hopes to complete the trek from Solway Firth to Newcastle Upon Tyne in six days.
He said: “The walks have become something of a bi-annual event. I’ve already completed the Three Peaks and the Welsh 3000.
“It took me three days to complete the Welsh 3000. Some athletes can finish it in one day, but I don’t know how they do it.”
Frank receives considerable support from St Mary’s Church in Oldswinford and even gets Stourbridge MP Margot James to sponsor him.
He added: “Most of the sufferers tend to be under 30 and none of us are getting any younger. Everyone involved with the Project is a volunteer.”
Anyone interested in sponsoring Frank can obtain forms at H-2-Snow in Market Street or email email@example.com
