Potters Bar workers walk to work for Children in Need
WALKING to work is all well and good if you live close to your place of employment.
But when the distance is some seven miles its not even worth considering.
That is unless your Amy Marsh and Liz Nicolaou.
The duo will be walking from Amy’s home in Enfield Town to their UK Power Networks office, in Darkes Lane, Potters Bar, this morning (Friday) to raise funds for Children in Need.
Pledges of support have so far rolled in from colleagues to bring them close to their �200 fund raising target.

Liz, a highway services coordinator, said: “If we power walk we think it will take us about two hours and at that time of the morning we will need to power walk to keep warm.
“It’s a good way to keep fit and raise money for a good cause.”

The girls will be taking the most direct route along The Ridgeway to their work, which is the UK’s largest distributor of electricity.
The idea was sparked by Amy, who plans to walk the 26 mile MoonWalk for breast cancer causes in May.
The connections coordinator added: “I’m looking forward to the challenge.
“It will be great raising money for the children.
“We’ve had lots of support from colleagues, we’ve planned our route and we hope to be at work on time by nine.”
Colleagues in Potters Bar will also be supporting this year’s Children in Need appeal by taking part in a dress down day, with a spotty twist.
