There’s nothing like a gentle summer walk in the countryside, is there? Well what CTFC Supporter Angela Maria and 16 of her Comtrex Systems work colleagues have planned for 26th July will be nothing like a gentle summer walk in the countryside! Setting off at Midnight, they’ll be walking 40 miles non stop across the South Downs in aid of Action Medical Research, a charity dedicated to saving and changing children’s lives. And they need your help.

Action Medical Research are a Horsham based charity. Their work is focused on saving and improving the lives of children, and their results have been impressive- as you can see by visiting their website at:

As they state, however, “Although the research we have funded has helped save and change so many children’s lives, there is still so much more to learn about what triggers diseases, how to prevent them and how to develop effective new treatments and find the best ways to treat sick babies and children”.

Angela and her colleagues, by taking part in the South Downs Way PLOD, are hoping to raise a mighty six thousand pounds for this worthwhile cause. The best way you can help is to donate by following this link:

Please join us and support Angela and her team in their endeavours. Every donation, big or small, will make a difference and earn their unending gratitude! If the 4000 people who visit this website every month give just one pound each, they’ll be well on the way to meeting their target. Oh, and if you know anyone who can supply blister plasters wholesale…….!

You can find out more about challenge here- but in essence it starts at midnight at Devils Dyke and ends at 4.30 PM opposite the Pub at Beachy Head, Eastbourne. It’s a real test of endurance, but at least there should be a chance of refreshment at the end!

We’re sure you’ll join with us to wish Angela and her fellow trekkers the best of luck! Please feel free to share this link via social media and to tell your friends- let’s get the word out and really maximise our support.
