AE Sewing Machines proudly sponsors Sharon Jones in her Great Wall of China Trek for Charity

Our friend, Sharon Jones, is completing a trek of the Great Wall of China to raise money for Nightingale House Hospice. When we heard about what Sharon was doing in the name of charity, we were more than happy to sponsor her and donate to the cause.

Walking the Great Wall of China for Charity

A trek along the Great Wall of China is no easy feat. Stretching on for over 5,000 miles in length (13,171 miles if you include all of its branches!) this is an absolutely massive journey for anyone to undertake. The length of the wall is the equivalent of around 200 marathons. Granted, people don't tend to run along the Great Wall, but that certainly puts into perspective how long it is. Sharon had always wanted to walk along the Great Wall and now she gets to tick it off her bucket list while raising a lot of money for a wonderful charity.


We sponsored Sharon on her journey along the Great Wall of China and the AE Sewing Machines logo is featured on her hoodie, along with a number of other local businesses!

Nightingale House Hospice

Nightingale House offers care services to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families. They cover a wide area stretching from Wrexham, Flintshire and East Denbighshire to Barmouth and the border towns including Oswestry and Whitchurch. Their services include a 12-bed inpatient ward, a 15 patient daycare unit, an outpatient clinic, a range of therapies and an ambulance service. They also offer bereavement support services for families. Nightingale House relies on charitable donations to provide the services that they do. Before Sharon left for China, she set a target of £2,000 in donations. As of the time this article was written, she has raised a whopping £3,812.42 through her Just Giving page. We're very proud to be a part of Sharon's journey and we're pleased to see how generous people have been with their donations.

Sharon's Just Giving page is still open to receive donations to Nightingale House Hospice. To make a donation to the charity, visit her page and click 'Donate'. Join us in supporting Sharon and her noble cause!
