The Sheffield Way 2016

On Saturday 2 July 2016, Eastwood & Partners took part in the second Sheffield Way Charity Walk organised by Race Cottam Associates.

 This year, the chosen charity was the Cathedral Archer Project, a day centre based at Sheffield Cathedral whose goal is to help people overcome homelessness and lead fulfilling, stable and enjoyable lives.

 The 45 mile circular path around Sheffield was once again split into clockwise and anti-clockwise halves, both with three sections of 7-8 miles each. However this year, the course began at Fox House in the Peak District, and finished at Meadowhall, giving a very different approach than the 2014 walk!

Our intrepid explorers assembled at Fox House at 7.00am and walked the clockwise route, calling at Wyming Brook and Oughtibridge. A stop at Our Cow Molly for some excellent ice cream kept everyone’s spirits up along the way, and we arrived at Meadowhall Interchange just after 6.00pm! Once again, congratulations to everyone who took part, and particularly to Phil and Steve (who reprised their glory from 2014) and Andy and Katie (who wouldn’t allow Phil and Steve to have all the bragging rights) for completing the whole half!

Sore feet aside, we had a brilliant day in aid of a very worthy cause, and got to see how the Cathedral Archer Project operates and witness the good it does for Sheffield – many thanks to all who helped organise the day (and provided the excellent Celebration BBQ!) We look forward to the next one!
