Prolific south Warwickshire fundraiser steps out again

Leamington Editorial 20th Sep, 2023   0

A PROLIFIC south Warwickshire fundraiser is stepping out a second time for a vital charity.

Morrisons community champion Alex Pearson will be joined by her canine companions Archie and Chester on Saturday (September 23) when she walks 27 miles in aid of Warwickshire Search and Rescue.

She will walk all the way from Birmingham city centre to Leamington Morrisons along the canal.

So far Alex has raised over £8,000 for the charity, which Morrisons has match funded.




She said: “I am doing my second walk for Warwickshire Search and Rescue because the work they do is amazing. All the teams are voluntary and every penny raised goes back to support training, vehicles and general needs for the charity.

“The fact the volunteers take time out of their lives when they have time off from their full time jobs to go out at any hour of the day to support the police is amazing and they don’t get paid for it, just shows how dedicated they are.”


Warwickshire Search and Rescue spokesperson Nick Cole added: “We’re so grateful to Alex for supporting the team with this challenge. Our members spend a lot of time training and out on live searches, so when someone takes the time to fund raise for us it is such a huge help. The money raised and matched by Morrisons will help us continue to search for vulnerable missing people when they most need our help.”

This is Alex’s seventh fundraising event of the year including walks for Evelyn’s GIft and Safeline.
