Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others - By Molly Mile­ham-Chappell

A fam­ily from Mer­sham have com­pleted a six-month-long walk­ing chal­lenge in aid of a wildlife char­ity.

The Stro­ver fam­ily have walked the en­tire North Downs Way from Farn­ham, Sur­rey to Dover since Jan­uary, clock­ing up hun­dreds of miles.

The team, made up of dad Andrew, mum Philippa, and daugh­ters Felic­ity, 14, Gaby, 13, Izzy, 10, and Darcey the dog, com­pleted the walk on Sun­day with a walk from Capel to Dover.

The fam­ily have been rais­ing funds for WWF and have walked in bliz­zards and scorch­ing sun­shine to com­plete the walk over 20 week­ends with walks be­tween five and 15 miles in length.

The idea oc­curred af­ter mum Philippa Stro­ver chal­lenged the fam­ily to walk the en­tire North Downs Way from Farn­ham in Sur­rey to Dover in­stead of a New Year’s res­o­lu­tion. She said: “We com­pleted the North Downs Way walk along with 34 of our friends! Spon­sor­ship for the walk is open. Visit just­giv­ing.com/Philip­paStro­ver
