Okay, not quite 500 miles but on June 11th, our intrepid Director, Sam ventured out on to the South Downs at Brighton at an eye-watering 6.30am, and set off on the South Coast Mighty Hike for MacMillan.

Sam and her two amigos, took on steep inclines, blistered feet and overwhelming camaraderie over the 26.9 miles. Survivors, bereaved family members, friends, supporters and those touched by cancer in any way, put one foot in front of the other on this hot and glorious morning.
