Friday, 31 January 2014

Abellio Greater Anglia’s Anne Teasdale is preparing to put her best foot forward to raise funds for charity.

On May 25 Anne will walk 100km from London to Brighton to raise funds for Guide Dogs for the Blind, with an aim to complete the mammoth task in 25 hours.

In preparation for this challenge, Anne is undertaking a gruelling training regime; visiting the gym three times a week for cardio vascular training and weight training, plus walking 40 to 50 miles a week over a variety of terrain.

But Anne is no stranger to undertaking a difficult task having completed the Three Peaks Challenge for the benefit of the Railway Children Charity in 2010 and the Four Peaks for the benefit of the Alzheimer's Society in 2011. Anne has also completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge on a number of occasions.

Anne is a familiar face at Ipswich station, where she is part of the customer services team.

James Steward Abellio Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Services Manager said: “We’re really proud of Anne. She’s always ready to give a helping hand at Ipswich station and now she’s putting her best foot forward for charity too.”
