Elsie-May is participating in Challenge 84, which is an 84 mile hike from 6th – 13th of April this year. It will take place alongside Hadrian’s wall, starting at Wallsend in South Shields and finishing in Bowness. Elsie and 11 other Army cadets will be camping each night and completing the challenge in aid of charity.
Elsie’s chosen charity is Layla’s trust, a local charity helping families on the island get the support they need when losing a child or caring for a child with life limiting disabilities or illnesses. They are saving up for a room in st. Mary’s hospital to allow parents who’s children are terminally ill to spend time with them in a quiet and calm surrounding.
