Update on - Nordic Walking Couple Who Ditched Wedding List For Malawi Aid

Last month you may have read about two of my clients David Taylor and Heather Fraser. David and Heather were looking forward to their wedding on August 13th.

They asked their wedding guests to help bring water to an African village instead of buying them wedding presents and wanted to raise £2,000 to drill a borehole in the Sauya in Malawi.

Here is an update from David and Heather:

Hi David,

Well the wedding was brilliant and we raised £1270 for our project. We are holding a disco/raffle/bbq at our local gym on 1st Oct so hope to reach our £2000 target after that.

We spent our honeymoon in Snowdonia - taking the summit of Snowdonia 3 times - how crazy is that - we did the Snowdon Ranger, The Pygroute/miners route and then did the big Watkins route.

Note: Snowdon is the highest mountain peak in Wales (editor)

Our fixed length Nordic Poles got a lot of attention as everyone else had telescopic poles. It' s amazing how many people don't know how to fit their straps for maximum efficiency - Nordic poles are fine until you have to scramble up rocks and scree - but they do slot into backpacks so no worries there.

The Nordic Poles really enabled us to extend ourselves, especially when we did some steep forest trails.

Regards Heather and David Taylor
