THREE women from a Haverfordwest-based lettings agency walked 50 miles in 24 hours and raised £3808 to help a local man.

Business partners Gail Jones and Kirsty Deluca, and employee Steffani Hosker of Letsmove Residential Lettings set themselves the non-stop challenge on behalf of Greg Mott, who Kirsty describes as an “inspirational young man”

Greg, 24, from Haverfordwest, has Cerebral Palsy and Tracheomalacia Formia. The conditions have left him unable to communicate without the aid of his family and support team from Value Independence (VI).

The trio of walkers smashed their £2000 target to purchase a tablet communication aid for Greg, which will enable him to communicate more freely, using specialist apps, and offer him a far greater level of independence

“We were extremely lucky with the weather,” said Kirsty. “The support and generosity from the local community was wonderful, and our husbands deserve a big thank you for manning support vehicles to ensure we had supplies. The walk was everything we expected it to be and more. At different points during the walk we all had moments where we struggled, especially with the sleep deprivation, but firmly holding in our minds how important the communication aid was to Greg really helped us to dig deep and carry on.”

The women set off from the Letsmove office on High Street and finished at the VI office at Meadow View, Lower Thornton.

Sam Warden from VI accompanied the trio the entire way, and Greg took part from Haverfordwest to St Davids before re-joining the walkers for the final leg of their journey.

“Greg was with us for the majority of the walk,” said Kirsty. “Having him there for the last stretch really gave us the final boost to complete the challenge.”

The walkers presented a delighted Greg with the money at the Bristol Trader, his local pub.
