A CHARITY founded by a Barry woman who died in a car crash while helping people in Zambia is seeking volunteers to take part in a sponsored walk in which fundraisers journey from a big city to a little city.

The SAFE Foundation is looking for volunteers to take part in Wales’ longest and toughest sponsored walk, a 200-mile trek from Cardiff, to the UK’s smallest city, St Davids.

The charity, which mentors young people in the UK getting them involved in projects that improve the lives of people living in poverty overseas, hopes to raise £15,000 towards a health and education centre in southern India.

The centre is to be named in honour of Lucy Dickenson.

The 20 to 30 miles a day walk ventures along some of Wales’ most beautiful coastline with a support team setting up a campsite each night.

After 10 days, the walk will end and the walkers will gain free entry to the Blue Lagoon festival being held in St David’s.

SAFE is looking for up to 12 people to take part and to get themselves sponsored for the trek.

The walk follows last year’s successful event, which saw eight people take part raising £7,000 for SAFE and its work in the process.

This year’s walk starts at Cardiff’s Millennium Centre on Wednesday, May 23 and finishes at St David’s Cathedral more than 200 miles and ten days later.

Safe volunteer coordinator, Angela Bettany said this year’s walk would be a real challenge, but one that was set to raise money for a brilliant cause.

She said: “It’s hard to think of a tougher, but more enjoyable charity challenge in Wales. It is most certainly not for the faint hearted.

“But everyone who took part last year had a fantastic time and experienced a real sense of achievement. There was a real feeling of camaraderie by the end with everyone pulling together to make it through.

“This time around things are even more important. The money raised will go to a cause close to our hearts, the Lucy Memorial Centre, which is set to provide vital health and education needs to some of southern India’s poorest communities.”
