12th November 2917. A woman has overcome illness and powered herself with peanut butter to raise £720 for the National Coastwatch station at Froward Point.
Royal Tunbridge Wells resident Kate Tremlett has run 72 miles during September to raise money for the station, where her grandfather Alan Barrett is a watchkeeper. He is also part of the dedicated team maintaining the Second World War gun battery buildings leased by NCI Froward Point from the National Trust. Thanks to three jars of “energy-giving” peanut butter, Kate was able to achieve the challenge in 13 hours, taking 128,012 steps along the way. Kate ran her project via the online giving platform GivenGain.com.
NCI Froward Point Station Manager Glyn Watkin said: “We have several projects in mind to improve the service we offer and this magnificent effort by Kate will go a long way to help us achieve our goals. We are immensely grateful.”
