Making Memories… Giving Hope

Ticking off CHICKS' Childhood Checklist!


CHICKS volunteer Kathryn, pictured above on break at our Daleside Retreat, undertook a brilliant fundraising challenge for us this summer - raising £350! 

Kathryn, along with family and friends, walked 60 km (around 37 miles) from Hartlepool to South Shields in two days. Along the way, they completed the CHICKS' childhood checklist of all the things children should get to do during the summer! This included: 

  • Make a daisy chain
  • Get muddy
  • Climb a tree
  • Fly a kite
  • Toast marshmallows over a campfire
  • Play on the beach
  • Have a picnic
  • Build a den

We love how Kathryn managed to incorporate the ethos of CHICKS into her fundraising efforts! Watch and see how the walk went:


 Thank you Kathryn & co! You can sponsor them here
