On Sunday 19th May, President Meredith Thompson, and Secretary Olivia Williams, embarked, alongside friends, family, and colleagues, on the Buckingham Bullets’ 10 Mile Charity Walk for Breast Cancer Now.

Breast Cancer Now was the charity chosen to support because it has personally affected Merry and Liv. Merry lost her beautiful mum, Amanda, to breast cancer in 2020, and Liv’s wonderful Nan, Elizabeth, is currently living with breast cancer.

Therefore, the charity walk was in memory of Merry’s Mum, and support of Liv’s Nan. Having experienced first-hand the devastating impact this remorseless disease can have on individuals and families, the Buckingham Bullets made it their aim to raise as much money as possible to help support other people being impacted by breast cancer.

On the day, the sun was shining down on as they walked from the University, through Buckingham, around Stowe, to Akeley, and then back into Buckingham via Maids Moreton.

The route, which was planned by Liv, was picturesque and all walkers saw beautiful scenery including rolling fields, blue, cloudless skies, still lakes, and magnificent architecture in the form of Stowe House.

Unintentionally, the route also had various animals along it; the walkers all enjoyed seeing cows, lambs, horses, and alpacas. Many animals were found which gave them a little boost when their energy levels may have been reducing.

As of 22nd May 2024, Buckingham Bullets raised £1018 in total, despite their goal starting at just £500. The Buckingham Bullets, and Merry and Liv in particular, are incredibly grateful to everyone for their generous support.

Sarah Ruff, Sports Coordinator: “I am so proud of Merry (Cheer Club President) and Olivia (Cheer Club Secretary) for the planning and work they put into the walk.  They have raised a huge amount of money for charity whilst also shining a light on a cause which is close to their hearts.  You should both be very proud.”
