The Mayor, Cllr Jay Moore was joined by Borderland Rotary president Chris Bryan-Smith and a throng of walkers ready to take on the 14-mile challenge around Oswald’s Trail.

The charity walk was in aid of the mayor’s chosen cause for his mayoral year and beyond, a youth mental health initiative which helps to fill the gaps in national mental health schemes.  There is little current facility to cater for this so Jay decided that, rather than channel all monies raised into one charity, he would set up a fund that can be directed when and where it is needed most.

Chris Bryan-Smith said, “I have to admit that I didn’t do the whole walk but I hope that I made up for it by bringing a donation from Borderland Rotary and I really admire the work that Jay is doing with his mental health project and, of course, all those that walked the whole trail”.
