AFC Hornchurch fans may have been left despondent when Tonbridge Angels scored a late winner at Longmead on Saturday- but there was one consolation. At least they didn't have to walk back!
Setting off the previous day, a large group of supporters and officials walked the almost thirty-four miles from Bridge Avenue to Kent in aid of the Urchins Academy. They raised more than two thousand seven hundred pounds- cash which will go towards the building of a classroom. So far supporters have raised almost ten thousand pounds for the project.
The image- courtesy of Ann Hodgkinson- shows the intrepid band enjoying an overnight rest after the first twenty-five miles; well deserved, particularly given that most of the walk was uphill and the weather was far from kind!
