Posted in : News on by : Around DB Comments: 0

A group of HSBC employees will walk 100km non-stop across Lantau Island this weekend to raise money to build a school in Nepal.

Cheung Sha resident Linoy Kidd is leading the 50 walkers who make up the Infusion 100 team, who have a dream to build three schools in three years to help developing communities.

This year they have already held a walk in London in July and will start their Lantau walk at 9am on Saturday.

“We will walk the whole of Lantau from Cheung Sha, Shek Pik, Tai O, Tung Chung, Mui Wo, Pui O, Pak King Au to Ngong Ping before ending back in Cheung Sha,” she said.

“We start at 9am on the 19th of September and expect to finish at midday on the 20th of September.”

Linoy said the group, which has walkers from all around the world, are aiming to raise $50,000.

“Then on the 26th of September we fly to a small village, Kheda, in Nepal to build a school with the money we have raised from walking the 100km,” she said.

They undertook their first walk last year to build a school in Malawi.

Next year they plan to walk in Brazil and build a school in Nicaragua.
