Jackie Twitchett’s Isle of Wight Challenge 2017

One of our members, Jackie Twitchett, recently took part in the Isle of Wight Challenge 2017, to walk 106km around the Isle of Wight in support of Cancer Research UK!

Read how she got on:


Hi Everyone

Challenge completed!

Whole team made it home with Gem coming 1st Lady home in the two day event followed by Nic who was the fourth lady home. Myself, Hayley, Hope and Sam came in a respectable 56-59th respectively as a team. Exhausted but pleased with my time 106k in 21.58 hours.

A great team event and for me a personal high. Loved it. Now is mainly about rest and letting my feet and blisters heal. All worth it though and our chosen charities all receiving such generous contributions is the icing on the cake.

Thank you everyone for all your support. When I was low your support and messages of encouragement got me through. There is still time to donate as my JustGiving Page is still up and running – see link below.

It’s not too late to support her. Her JustGiving page is still active if you wish to donate.

Well done Jax!
