An employee from Covers OTBS in Bexleyheath has completed a 50-kilometre challenge for charity in memory of her partner.
Zoe Elms, a sales representative at the Orpington timber and builders’ merchants, embarked on the Thames Path Challenge alongside her mum, Liz Elms. The pair were raising money for Heart of Kent Hospice, which cared for Zoe’s partner, Craig Petch, in his final days before he sadly passed away from cancer.
Despite some difficult moments, Zoe and Liz finished the challenge ahead of their goal finish time, completing the 50km route in an impressive 9 hours and 25 minutes.
“A huge thank you to everyone who has shown their support and for their kind words, messages and donations. We have raised a massive £1,030 on JustGiving and, due to Covers’ generous funding match, we have increased that total to £2,030 for The Heart of Kent Hospice.”
