Wall Walkers

Sponsorship from Kubota UK has played a valuable part in helping two intrepid lady walkers raise more than £6,000 for The Children's Society.

The walk, which covered 62 miles of the Great Wall of China, was undertaken by Della Ormston and Sophie Wharton, Creative Director and office manager at Sage and Sequoia, the Buckinghamshire marketing agency used by Kubota.

Della and Sophie walked for five consecutive days as part of a team comprising 40 other sponsored walkers from the UK plus six Chinese and four British guides. Della said that she and Sophie had chosen to walk the Great Wall because it presented an unusual challenge and helped support an excellent charity working in a particularly difficult area.

"The whole experience was fantastic and thanks are due to everyone who sponsored the walk, especially Kubota, whose donation was a huge help, taking us well past our original target of £5,000."
