Pair take on charity walk

TWO sisters will be heading north when they embark on a gruelling trek to help people with hearing difficulties.

Georgina Fuge, 52, and Angie Armstrong, 55, have challenged themselves to walk 25 miles along Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland to raise money for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People – a charity which trains dogs to alert deaf people to important sounds and dangers.

The pair, who are both deaf, will be taking part in the walk on September 10 and 11, splitting the distance over the two days.

Mrs Fuge, from Essex Avenue in Sudbury, said the idea for the trek was her sister’s.

“It is Angie’s madcap idea,” she said. “But we both enjoy walking and thought we would give it a go to raise awareness of a charity which is very important to us.

“I am getting a bit worried about the walk now as it is so close but we have been in training and I’m sure we will be fine.”
