Mad Hatters

How far can you go wearing a BVAA Hat?

The BVAA Hat continues its travels, this time in some truly ‘mad’ conditions! Pictured (shivering) are Rhys Jones, Simon James, Sian Elvis and Nathan Adams of Hobbs Valve on the ‘Thunderwalk’ – a 24 hour, 54 mile Charity walk in the Brecon Beacons. Team ‘Rhys Lightening’ donned BVAA hats for the occasion. BVAA were delighted to make a donation to the team’s JustGiving site in aid of Noah’s Ark Appeal, a Children’s hospital in Wales.
