Jess’ incredible 100-mile walk for Captain Tom 100 Challenge
Jess Peacock aims to walk 100 miles in five days to raise money for National Star.
Jess, who works as a facilitator at National Star at Ullenwood, is taking part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge. On 29 April Jess, along with dogs Cooper and Evie, will set out on the Cotswold Way. She will camp along the way.
‘I always wanted to walk the Cotswold Way and I wanted to raise money for National Star, so this seemed to be the perfect challenge,’ said Jess, age 29, who lives in Cheltenham.
‘The best part of my job is supporting the students and seeing the progress they make while they are at National Star.’
Jess, a keen walker, is getting into shape for her challenge. Over the weekend (17 to 18 April) she walked 30 miles and she says she is confident she can complete her challenge.
‘We are so grateful to Jess – and to Cooper and Evie – for taking part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge,’ said Catrin Viveash, Fundraising Manager. ‘It is thanks to people such as her that we can provide the incredibly high standard of facilities to the young people we support.’
