In February 2017 we welcomed Kieran Sandwell, to Cromer, he was walking the coast of Britain to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation. Kieran, grateful for a lifesaving heart transplant and now able to give something back, was a true inspiration to us. So we decided to create a 75 Mile Challenge to celebrate Val’s 75th year and raise funds for the BHF. In August Val & Hilary completed the challenge, raising over £800.
