The Strolling Bones walk the Oxfam Trailtrekker 2013

16/06/13 / Events

Northern Fan Supplies were proud to support and follow the strolling bones in the 2013 Oxfam trail trekker, especially when we discovered they were planning to walk 100K and the target was to complete this as a team of 4 in under 30 hours.

The team consisted of:

Gale Light (Leader)

Affectionately also known as:

  • Kim Jung 11
  • Essex Johnny Dep
  • Ade Edmundson
  • General Stormin Norman Light
  • Lord Light of Thorrington
  • El Capitano Light 

Andy Window (Manchester Midget)

Andy is currently in discussions with his solicitors regarding the name Manchester Midget” he feels this term is demeaning, slanderous, stereotypical and generally an insult to his reputation … he’s actually from Altrincham

Jamie Slowgrove (Norbert)

Jamie was heard to say after the event Anybody who sees me in a boat has my permission to shoot me” apparently he was hallucinating he was Sir Steve Redgrave? Read the Strolling Bones blog for an explanation .

Ben Cooper (Silent Assassin)

Unfortunately Ben had to drop out due to injury at the Silver Stage a tantalising 20Km from the finish. He gave a 2 page reaction to this set back having just finished the London marathon a few weeks before the walk. As children may read this blog we have published the edited child friendly version


Hamish McGregor and James Fisher were the invaluable support team.

You can read the full story of the journey and all the pre-planning, training, tears, tantrums and a little controversy here: http://​the​strolling​bones​.blogspot​.co​.uk/

If you’re interested in joining the event next year there are more details on the below link, you never know we may see you there.



We thought they had a screw loose the first time, but rumour has it they plan to do it all again. Why not sign up today and enjoy the experience of a life time? While at the same time changing other peoples life experience.
