"Hadrians Wall was always something to aspire to, both for the history and the sense of achievement of travelling coast to coast across our great country." - Gary


Gary has never shied away from a challenge. He thrives off responsibility and overcoming obstacles. He will be aiming to test himself again when he and his group take on the great challenge of the Hadrian's Wall Path in September 2023. The path stretches along the coast from the North of England, from east to West.

This 84 mile trek will be a fantastic experience for all involved, and Gary's determination to overcome this challenge is fuelled by his motivation to support a charity that he proudly represents. Havering Mind provides support to anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Gary will be hoping to overcome this challenge, and the determination he and his group will demonstrate can make a huge difference to those in need.

Havering Mind have a number of support initiatives, such as the Work Well Programme.
