Walk to Bethlehem

Jayne Humphries Funeral Arranger at Hemming & Peace Funeral Services joined forces with the local community to walk the distance between Bethlehem and Henley-in-Arden to support the town’s Christmas lights display.

Jayne and 66 local residents were sponsored to walk 50 miles each across November, which adds up to the 3,400-mile distance between the city of Jesus’ birth and Henley-in-Arden, to raise money for the Beaudesert & Henley Christmas lights.

Funds are usually raised for the display during the switch-on event but, with social distancing restrictions preventing the tradition, the organisers resorted to more creative fundraising methods.

Jayne trekked two five-mile journeys per day to reach her target before 1 December.  

The total amount raised through the combined efforts of all 66 participants was a staggering £7543.50.
