Helping to enhance careers

We went on a walk… a long (and mountainous) walk!!!

On the 29th August, an intrepid group of Cityscape Recruitment Consultants organised and took part in a half-marathon walk along the Jurassic Coast. They embarked on the challenge to raise valuable money and awareness for the Marine Conservation Society. They were also reminded of the beauty of the sea and our coastline every step of the way. Exactly why it needs protecting.

Cityscape Recruitment has been active supporters of the Marine Conservation Society for some time (click here for more information). Last’s years Blue Planet II cemented our commitment to the cause and inspired us to do more. This was one of a few activities we have done this year for the charity – another being their plastic challenge, where we gave up all single-plastic in the office for the month of June (read all about it here).

The walk itself started at the famous Dorset landmark Durdle Door and ended 13.5 miles later at Chapman’s Pool.

The start:

The finish (walking down to Chapman Pool’s bay – very happy):

Jurassic Coast

It’s fair to say the terrain was very challenging in parts. The section of the Jurassic Coast the team walked not only covered a substantial distance but was (in their words) treacherous, perilous and very mountainous! It also took them through a military firing ground, which, thankfully, wasn’t active at the time. It definitely put our consultants through their paces. But, although a few injuries were picked up and a couple of blisters popped on sore feet, the team ended the walk with a relieved smile and very proud of their achievement.

We were aiming to raise over £1000 for the walk but managed to raise a massive £1,248 (£1,426.25 with gift aid) for the charity! Thank you to all our sponsors. You have donated to a very worthwhile cause.
