Champion Leamington fundraiser steps out once again - for LWS Nightshelter

Leamington Editorial 27th Apr, 2023   0

A TIRELESS Leamington fundraiser is lacing up her walking boots for the second time this year – this time for LWS Nightshelter.

Morrisons community champion Alex Pearson, along with her canine duo Archie and Chester, will be walking over 11 miles for the homeless charity on May 15.

It is Alex’s second fundraising challenge of the year so far after already completing a charity walk for Safeline.

For this new challenge, Alex will be joined by members of the LWS team who volunteer every weekend to give support to those in need, as well as Leamington Mayor Coun Nick Wilkins, who was once homeless himself.

Susan Rutherford from LWS Nightshelter said: “We are so blessed by the support we have by the community. We hold a lot of campaigns to help us with food and we are always so lucky. At Christmas we had the giving tree in Morrisons which customers raised £1,163 which will make a huge difference and to know have Alex choosing us as a charity fundraiser is just amazing and we are so lucky to have her support and of course Archie and Chester.”

Alex added: “This is a great charity who support those in real need. Morrisons have supported them in volunteering and it is service that is highly used. I chose this charity to support this year due to the fact so many people support it because the work they do is just amazing and it is so important. Our community is aware of the homeless issue we have and they want to support in any way possible. I cannot wait to do this walk with the LWS team and bring some more awareness to the shelter.”

Alex has gained a reputation for her crazy challenges and has ridden a pedalo down the Grand Union Canal and canoed from Stoneleigh Abbey to Warwick Castle.
