Pete walks 150 miles for charity.

Posted on: October 30, 2012

Brookwells backed Land Rover enthusiast Pete Garlick has completed an epic trek for charity, walking 150 miles in a week to raise funds for RACE2RECOVERY, Help For Heroes and Tedworth House.

The report on RACE2RECOVERY’s website states, “Pete Garlick from the Devon and Cornwall Club has just finished a mammoth walk to Tedworth House in Wiltshire from Plymouth. He battled the recent storms, floods and general inclement weather of southern Britain to raise money for the charity and is saluted by the team for his resolve, determination and generosity. Well done Pete!”


Pete completed his challenge back on the 1st of October 2012 and managed to raise £1,648.72 for this great cause. In a letter to Brookwells he said, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance and support in sponsoring me a very generous £75.00 to assist with the unavoidable expenses that were required to complete my goal to raise funds for Help for Heroes’ Tedworth House.

“On completing my walk, we had a tour of Tedworth House, even though I already knew a lot about the work and assistance they give to our injured service personnel, I was overwhelmed by the dedication this charity shows and the different activities and re-training Tedworth House has to offer. Your money will help them to assist them in continuing their work and support.”

We would like to echo race2recovery’s sentiments and say a very big “Well done Pete!” A great story about a great feat for a fantastic cause!
