Midsummer Madness: Tim’s 50km challenge

On 21 June, Tim Corry took on the South Downs Way to raise money for Gurkha veterans and inspire people to do the same.

After serving in The Royal Air Force and being given the opportunity to work alongside retired Gurkha veterans throughout his military career, Tim has developed a deep respect for the Gurkhas and took on the mighty Trailwalker a couple of years running in support of us and Oxfam.

To celebrate Midsummer’s Day on 21 June, Tim  set himself the epic task of running 50km across the South Downs Way. Alongside three other friends and adhering to the social distancing regulations, Tim and his friends ran from Petersfield to Winchester without stopping to raise money in support of our vital work in Nepal.


“I can’t think of many better causes to support.”


“I wanted to go out do something good for charity but also do something a little bit more and try to lift the national spirit and try to encourage more people to do something on 21 June and mark Midsummer’s Day.”


“It was a good run. It rained for the for first hour or so, but the sun was shining by the time we finished.”
