Walkers inspired by brave Archie
A CHARITY walk raised cash for a good cause at the weekend after villagers were inspired by the story of Archie Hill.
Nine-year-old Archie has muscular dystrophy and his family have been busy raising funds for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
Brave Archie has already visited David Cameron in Downing Street and enjoyed a visit from Arsenal and England footballer Jack Wilshere in an action packed year.
PEOPLE put their best foot forward in order to help raise funds for charity. A 5km walk took place on Sunday, May 10, to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
The event was organised by Louisa and Gary Hill, from Chalfont St Peter, whose son Archie, nine, suffers from the illness.
Mr and Mrs Hill have organised a host of fundraising events for the cause, but this time they decided to set up a charity walk.
Those involved in the event walked from Chalfont St Peter to Chalfont St Giles and back.
Mrs Hill said: “It went really well.
“We were quite touched at the number of people who turned up and showed their support.
“The weather was fantastic as well, which made a big difference.”
The amount raised by the event has not yet been confirmed, but all proceeds will go to the charity.
