Money raised from ‘Midnight Madness’

Local MP Sheryll Murray was one of the many people who walked across Dartmoor after dark to raise money for the Fishermen’s Mission on Saturday night / Sunday morning.


The Fishermen’s Mission is the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care. They help all fishermen, active or retired, and their families.  Sheryll received support from the Mission when she lost her husband Neil whilst he was fishing and wants to help the organisation so it can help others.


The 10 mile walk started in Princetown taking a circular route including North Hessary Tor, Little Mis Tor, Four Winds, Hucken Tor and Ingra Tor.  The event was supervised throughout by the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team.


Following the event Sheryll said, “I was really pleased that I was able to undertake this walk for a charity that was there for me when I needed support.  I would like to thank all those who sponsored me for their generosity and to the Mountain Rescue team who ensured we completed the walk safely.
