On Saturday August 31st the South Downs were speckled with sparks of orange as more than 25 of Olly’s Future friends and family walked from Shoreham-by-Sea to Worthing in remembrance of Olly.
Over hills and along paths trodden many times by Olly, we arrived at his resting place – adorned by flowers and outlined with a halo of painted pebbles. He’s shining as bright as ever.
The 7 mile route took us along the Arun River, up to Lancing Ring, then Steep Down, Beggars Bush, Lychpole Hill and famous Cissbury Ring, which is an Iron Age Hill Ford and Stone Age flint mines. Chris, Olly’s dad, shared his knowledge of the history with us all along the way too.
Next years event will be on Saturday 5th September 2020 so make sure you have this date in the diary.
