Southampton Youth Campaign walk through stormy weather to raise £1K
11:20am Thursday 2nd January 2014 in News
THEY were battered by high winds and heavy rain for a good cause.
They arrived at Winchester Theatre Royal at 2pm, six hours after they set off.
The group is run by Southampton’s Muslim Youth and has raised nearly £1,000 for the Islamic Relief charity. Husam Al Jabbar, one of the organisers, said it was a great success.
Husam, 18, of Bassett, Southampton, said: “The weather played a big part and probably delayed us by an hour. It was really difficult for the first eight miles but once we got to Winchester it brightened up.
“But it went better than I could have hoped for. It was a really good cause and was a lot of fun to be doing this with my friends regardless of the weather.”
