Father and daughters walk 25 hours over two days for air ambulance

Intrepid fundraisers Nigel Bliss and two daughters Loren and Megan completed the South Coast Challenge over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The challenge consists of a 100km ultra race, starting in Eastbourne and taking in the South Downs Way to Arundel.

With a goal of completion, the route was finished by all three following 25 hours of walking over two days.

So far, over £1,250 has been raised for the Warwickshire and Northampton Air Ambulance in memory of Jack Bliss, father and grandfather of the trio.

Jack, a local matchstick model maker, who died earlier this year, had used his talents over the years to raise money for the charity.

One of the many models he built in more than 40 years of his hobby was a scale model of the air ambulance helicopter, made entirely from matchsticks. He donated it to the charity to auction for their funds.

A previous model of a rugby ball which he gave them helped to raise £90.

Any donations for the air ambulance can still be made on the Bliss team Justgiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/teams/blissteam
