Heres some comments from their team....
"Myself and my colleagues are taking on an epic challenge for an amazing charity.
Walking 100km in a day from bath to Cheltenham in an attempt to raise a significant amount of money for an amazing charity.
Magic moments works to provide families of children with complex needs & life limiting conditions the opportunity to make amazing memories on holidays to Eurodisney.
We have been training hard, walking in the new boots & toughening up the feet - it's going to be a real challenge both personally and physically!"

"Over the past years I have completed a variety of charity events raising money for valuable worthy causes. I am grateful to all have in the past supported me. This year - a new challenge. And this year is it’s very poignant; The Charity I am fundraising for as part of a team is Magic Moments. This charity is dedicated to helping children suffering with life limiting illnesses. Last year they helped a very special boy who I have helped looked after for 5 short years go to Disneyland Paris This year we had to say a sad goodbye to this boy. Memories created will last forever for this family. They paid for and arranged a trip that was priceless to this family and many others. To hear and see the stories and photos on a genuine trip of a lifeline was so special. These trips and memories can only be made through fundraising by supporters. I wanted to be able to help other families experience this so as part of a team of work colleagues at TCS, I am taking part this year in a Mega Challenge walking between 25km-100km across the beautiful Cotswold countryside. It hasn’t been easy to fit in the training regime into busy work and family lives and the walk will be tough - but a small price to pay to help create more Magic Moments. 🌟"
