Arc Energy Team of Walkers to Trek 40 Miles Raising Funds for Action Medical Research
A team of walkers from Arc Energy Resources are to trek a 40 mile route along the Cotswold Way, raising vital money for Action Medical Research. The trek will begin at midnight on Sunday 10th June.

The team is comprised of walkers Jenny Dark, Cliff Hall, Andy Hall, Mark Farrell and Martin Sandles, with valuable support by the back-up team of Alan Robinson and Rosemary Robinson. They have been training for the event for several months, braving the snowy conditions of the long, cold Winter, the rain in the early Spring as well as the recent heatwaves.
Action Medical Research are dedicated to improving the health of babies and children.
Hundreds of thousands of children’s lives are devastated by disease and disability. Like Iona who at five was diagnosed with brain cancer, Tom who has the fatal muscle-wasting condition Duchenne muscular dystrophy or Alfie, who has severe cerebral palsy and can’t use his arms or legs and is unable to talk.
Medical research can help children like these but is underfunded in the UK. For every project Action funds there’s another one they have to turn away – simply because of a lack of funds.
New treatments and cures for sick babies and children are urgently needed.
