Countryside Alliance employee and Game to Eat champion, Jack Knott, is to walk 100km London to Brighton in aid of The Countryside Alliance Foundation. Jack said, ‘Running and myself have never been the best of friends, and I don’t think I will be too keen on walking after this monumental challenge. If the idea of walking 100km in around 22 hours straight leaves you with a sour taste, imagine having to get up and over the South Downs at 4 o’clock in the morning! Luckily, I am undertaking the challenge for the worthiest of causes and one that I know makes a massive difference to the future of the countryside.’ Please donate just a little bit to a fantastic charity and one that aims to secure and protect the British countryside for future generations. Back Jack for his challenge, which will take place on 23-24 May!
