Malvern's Team Zulu ready to take on the gruelling 34-mile Worcestershire Way Walk for St Richard's Hospice

A TEAM of fund-raisers from Malvern will take on their 11th Worcestershire Way Walk to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice.

Team Zulu – made up of Tarquin Shaw-Young, Ian Mootz, Dave Wallis, Nick Brown, Martin Bell, Mark Lofthouse and Iain Mackenzie – will undertake 34 miles in just one day to raise much-needed funds for the charity.

The team was founded in 2011 by Tarquin Shaw-Young and gets its name from the 1963 film Zulu, recognising the courage exemplified by both sides during the battle of Rorke’s Drift.

Team Zulu has raised more than £30,000 for the cause in the past decade.

Last year they did the walk in reverse – from Malvern to Bewdley – after the official walk had to be cancelled because of the pandemic.

The Worcestershire Way Walk is the equivalent of 1/5th the ascent of Everest in a day or equivalent climbing the Empire State Building 15 times.

The group is completely reliant on the generosity of donors and has set tself a target of £1,500 for this year’s challenge.
