Three work colleagues take on non-stop 55-mile Derbyshire Heritage Way walk for lifesaving charity


Three work colleagues are challenging themselves to the max by taking on a non-stop 55-mile heritage walk through Derbyshire to raise money for St John Ambulance.


Married couple Claire and Tim Hollingshurst and their work colleague Rich Trevatt, who all work at science company Lubrizol’s UK headquarters in Hazelwood, will be walking all 55 miles of the Derwent Valley Heritage Way next month, without stopping.


The trio are going the distance in aid of St John Ambulance, named by Lubrizol as its UK-wide charity earlier this year.
