Jackson-Stops & Staff Director takes on a 25 hour walking challenge for charity
  Julian Bunkall, Director of Jackson-Stops & Staff, Dorchester has set himself a challenge - to walk for 25 hours in order to raise 50,000 for charity. Julian and his
25-strong group of walkers will be raising money for both the National Osteoporosis Society, supporting them in their fight to prevent the disease, and the Weldmar
Hospice an independent charity working in Dorset, who provide palliative care for people suffering from terminal disease.

Organised by prominent gynaecologist Michael Dooley, the challenge sees friends and colleagues walk five routes totalling around 50 miles. The walk will start on 25 May
at The Chelsea Flower Show, launched by three time Emmy award winner, actress Susan Hampshire.

The routes include well-known locations in the capital, including London bridges, sports grounds, the Royal parks, and around Olympics venues. The final route will be around London hospitals. The sponsored event has been endorsed by high profile supporters, including Paula Radcliffe. She said: Raising awareness of the dangers and problems of Osteoporosis is vital and this is such a fun and engaging way to do so. Please support". It has also been sponsored by producers close to home for Julian Bunkall in Dorchester. Dorset Cereals, based close to Dorchester, will be providing cereal bars to keep the walkers energy up.

Julian Bunkall said: It is an event that promises to be both fun and challenging but, most importantly, it is a great way to raise money for charities that can change lives for the better. The team have already raised 40,000 for the charities, but in the approach to their challenge, they would be very grateful for any donations that can be made at www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/London25 in order for them to reach their target.
