The 52-mile Waterside Whitting Walk is now just weeks away.

Staff at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre have already completed 300 miles in training sessions ahead of the challenge to compete 52 miles in 24 hours on August 8.

Familiar faces from the theatre’s box office include deputy ticketing manager Charlie Mitchell and senior sales advisor Chris Leathers. Both are hoping to walk the 15 miles from Aylesbury to Chesham.

Charlie said: “My family and friends keep giving words of encouragement and will be sponsoring me, but it’s the troopers who are going the whole hog and trekking 52 miles who deserve the support.”

The 52 mile challenge is in aid of local charity, Florrie’s Children’s Hospice, with the money making a vital difference in helping to support sick children battling life-limiting illness.
