LOCAL CONSTRUCTION AND SHOPFITTER DIRECTOR TO WALK 630 MILES FOR CHILDREN IN NEED

Neil Ball Director of Swindon-based Bushton Ferris Ltd is walking the South West Coastal Path to raise money for Children in Need. 

“I started to walk the 630 miles of the Coastal Path about seven years ago and so far have walked from Poole Harbour in Dorset to Mawgan Porth in Cornwall which is 440 miles!” explained Ball. 

With his friend, Susan Ritchie, Ball walks as much as he can at weekends, due to his work commitments with Bushton Ferris. 

With a proven track record of delivering work of the highest quality, both nationally and locally, Bushton Ferris provides professional construction services to suit a wide range of needs, including conversations and extensions to residential properties as well as shop fitting. 

“Susan and I relished the challenge of walking the entire length of South West Coastal Path. Our aim is to complete the remaining 190 miles from Mawgan Porth to Minehead in Somerset before the 2019 Children in Need Day, so we have just under a year to do it,” said Ball. 

“Although walking the path is hard work a lot of the time, the spectacular coastal views and amazing diversity of the countryside more than makes up for the real effort we have to put in to complete some of the sections.

Ball and Ritchie decided to make the best possible use of their walking experiences, which they share across their social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, by raising money for Children in Need. 

This is the first of many charity activities that Bushton Ferris is planning to undertake with all money raised going to children’s charities. 

“Susan and I are going down to Cornwall to complete the next section of the Coastal Path over the New Year holiday, so watch out for updates across social media. Let’s hope the weather is kind to us,” said Ball.
