Team Henry & Jon Hike West Highland Way’s story
Dear friends and family,
Jon and myself have decided to set ourselves the immense physical challenge of taking on the West Highland Way in Scotland - an intense journey a 96 mile hike through the highlands from Glasgow to fort William, carrying all of our equipment and sleeping wild along the way, in just 72 hours. All in a bid to raise money and awareness for a great cause that is close to our hearts.
Our friend and former team mate, Tom Wilson, sadly passed away from a freak accident whilst at hockey training in 2015.
During Fresher’s Week at Nottingham Trent University, Tom signed up to be an organ donor. As a result, Tom’s selfless act established his legacy of not only raising awareness of organ donation, but also changing countless lives of others in need.
In his memory, Tom’s mother and sister, Lisa and Pippa, have since founded The Tom Wilson Memorial Foundation - dedicated to continuing to raise awareness of organ donation nationwide. Through our challenge, we hope to help spread awareness of the great work that The Tom Wilson Memorial Foundation is doing.
If you would like to donate towards this amazing charity we would truly appreciate anything that you can give.
