Rotary Club of Longford support Mark Shelton’s Walk to Hobart

Days before walking out the gate at St.Giles in Launceston, Mark Shelton’s third fundraising walk is off to a flying start thanks to the Rotary Club of Longford.

The club made a sizable donation of $5000 putting the fundraiser over a quarter of the way to the $20,000 goal set before the event.

“Mark has been a champion for not only the local community, but Tasmanians more generally and this is the perfect opportunity for our club to support him as he supports St.Giles,” said Rotary Club of Longford finance director James Wilcox OAM.

“It’s great to get a kick start like this from the Rotary Club of Longford,” Mr Shelton said.

“It’s a bit easier to get through the kilometers when you know there’s some donations in the tin and we’re making a difference to children St.Giles support.”

Rotary Club of Longford director of marketing and promotion Di Barnett, MHA Mark Shelton, and Rotary shop volunteer Noreen Rapley with the sizable donation from the club.

The walk commences on Monday February 11th, with Mr Shelton walking an average of 40 kilometers a day, ending in Hobart on Friday the 16th.

The member for Lyons will be walking from February 12th to 16th:

Day 1: Launceston to Epping Forest

Day 2: Epping Forest to Ross

Day 3: Ross to Jericho

Day 4: Jericho to Brighton

Day 5: Brighton to Hobart
