Charity walk raises cash

A GROUP of twelve people have raised over £1,000 for charity after walking from North Roe to Sumburgh last month.

Twenty nine year old Adam Grzyb organised the Shetland Ultra Walk to generate money for the local branches of British Red Cross and CLAN Cancer Support.

The event, which was split into ten stages, took place on 18 July and saw twelve walkers embark on a route that began at the North Roe Primary School and concluded at Sumburgh Head.

Grzyb and his walkers raised a total of £1,318 for the two charities and the money was presented this week.

The walk allowed participants to cover as many miles as they wished, with cash collected on the day as well as in the weeks prior.

Grzyb, who is a volunteer at the local British Red Cross branch, previously said that one of reasons why he organised the walk was because there are “people in crisis” in Shetland in need of help.
