(April 2000) The Premiership Walk

The Last Long Journey!!

On 10th April next, David Bennett commences a 650-mile journey – “on foot”. His mission to visit every Premiership Club and Ground, commencing in Southampton and concluding in Newcastle at St. James’ Park on the 13th May.

The aim of the walk is to create awareness on the range of abilities of disabled students and graduates – there are in excess of 60,000 in the UK – and to raise the profile of the charity Workable of which David is currently the Director.

The route will include a visit to Banbury United on Saturday, the 22nd April followed by a night in his own bed! Before starting again at 10 am on Easter Sunday for a 20 mile hike to Warwick – prior to a week’s activities in the Midlands, including calls at Villa Park and Highfield Road. The company of Sibfordians would be welcome – mileage is at your discretion – and passing through Tysoe, Kineton and Barford is on the agenda – together with the necessary stops for refreshments!

Your support to this unique event would be very much appreciated – and if you don’t fancy walking – we have opportunities for support vehicle drivers too!
